One of our goals for MapEcos is to provide managers of
industrial facilities an opportunity to tell the public (and
each other) about steps they are taking to protect the
environment and the good things they bring their communities.
Harvard Business School developed a survey which asks about
environmental management practices and efforts at the facility
level. We obtained a contact list for representatives of
the facilities that report to the TRI, and we emailed a survey
to each person on the list. Of course, the survey is
voluntary and some facilities may choose not to respond or they
may choose not to disclose any information on the map.
that disclose any survey responses will be marked with a
green ring on MapEcos. This will highlight to map users
which facilities are sharing information about their
environmental management practices on the map.

trying to find out more about the site,
MapEcos provides information about the site, the team, and the
goals of our project. We suggest starting at home and
exploring from there.
have not received an email
and would like to complete the survey for your facility, please
We will call you back to confirm you are a qualified
representative for your facility, and then we will send you
connection information about how to take the survey.
The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. You can
skip question, return and change you answers. When you are
finished, you can decide whether
to disclose some (or all, or none) of your survey responses on
MapEcos. Unless you choose to disclose it, the information
you provide in the survey will be kept confidential and used
only by the faculty associated with this project.
