EcoBizPort.com is one of several environmental information and news services provided by Waste Information & Management Services, Inc. (WIMS) [See below]. The site was launched on Earth Day 2001.
The site is designed to be a homepage or major resource center for environmental professionals. It is a top down site, starting with major interest categories and working down to more and more details. It is also structured to provide details and functionality to users from specific states; issue interest areas; and industry/business sectors. The site is sponsored by WIMS and is funded entirely by WIMS and its corporate sponsors. It is offered as a public service and information resource to the environmental community. We are continually seeking new corporate sponsors, that receive and array of advertising and information service benefits, to assist in the financial support of this site.
Getting you to the information you need. . .
The goal of the site is to get the user to the information with the fewest number of clicks possible. The site is an evolution of environmental information, technical experience and Internet resources. We focus these components into a functional environmental business portal for use by the professional environmental manager. The site continues to evolve and develop over time.
In developing the site we reviewed and analyzed many of the business to business portals available on the Internet, including those claiming to have an environmental orientation. Most fall far short of providing the organizational structure and ease of use in accessing the critically pertinent information that is used on a day to day basis by environmental professionals. As environmental professionals and information specialists we have attempted to fill this void. It is our hope that this site will truly be used as the homepage for thousands of environmental interests -- consultants, facility and service managers, attorneys, government regulators and operators at all levels, universities, environmental organizations and citizen activists.
From a practical standpoint, we have chosen to make state government the center of the organizational structure. While Federal environmental laws and regulations provide the backdrop, the critical element of environmental management is the complex interplay of Federal laws and regulations that are implemented on 50 unique playing-fields of state government. Each state incorporates its own individual laws and regulations within the context of its unique and intricate political, social, economic and administrative structure. To account for this critical need, we incorporate individual state homepages.
Michigan was the starting point because that is where we live and operate. We added Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Minnesota. WIMS also provides specialized information services for the Great Lakes Region. Other states are being phased in as we develop the resources necessary to provide and assure a consistent level of overall quality. The site also offers specific orientation for users with particular interests in various issue/specialty areas and business/industry sectors. If you are interested in sponsoring a state, specialty or sector page, please contact us.
As the site continues to matures we believe it provides an unparalleled opportunity for integrated advertising, service/facility marketing and information management throughout the environmental community.
We have many ideas and plans for improvements and enhancements to this site, however, we welcome your thoughts, suggestions and comments. We also welcome inquiries regarding corporate sponsorships and possible areas of collaboration with other companies, organizations, institutions and individuals.
