The article offers information on the report from the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC). The reports shows that industrial chemical releases in North America fell by 20 percent in 1998-2003. The report found that 23,816 units in the U.S. and Canada released 3 million tonnes of chemicals in 2003. U.S. facilities had a bigger decline in emissions than those in Canada. CEC Executive Director William Kennedy said that It is encouraging to see the reductions in releases.
