Last week the EPA announced the release of its EJ 2014, its comprehensive 3-year plan to advance its environmental health goals. The policy document is part of EPA’s effort to meet Executive Order 12898, “Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations,” which requires Federal agencies to incorporate environmental justice into their mission. Under Plan EJ 2014, EPA will seek to work with local, overburdened groups to improve environmental conditions within the relevant communities.
Plan EJ 2014 can be found on the EPA’s website. While it is not a rule or regulation, it is expected that this guidance will significantly affect EPA’s actions with respect to these traditionally under served communities.
If you have any questions regarding Plan EJ 2014, contact us at 773-609-5320, firstname.lastname@example.org, or through our web contact form.
