The Right-to-Know Network, USA

The Right-to-Know Network provides free access to numerous databases and resources on the environment in order to empower citizen involvement in community and government decision-making on environmental issues. With the information available on RTK NET, citizens can identify specific factories and their environmental effects; find permits issued under environmental statutes; and identify civil cases filed. RTK NET was started in 1989 in support of the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) in USA, which mandated public access to the Toxic Release Inventory.
