This chapter reports environmental performance data of various facilities on the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) program releases and risk levels for the 1991 to 2000 period. It compares other data with this set for a better understanding of what these leading facilities and firms have done and the reasons for their success compared with others. The chapter suggests that management commitments to environmental practices, or the absence of practices, remain stable despite variations in facility performance. While only a limited set of factors appear to correlate with environmental performance, they do reveal what people think of the TRI program and information disclosure.

Keywords:   environmental performance, quantitative analysis, research questions, facility performance
