In 2010, EPA made expanding the conversation on environmentalism and working for environmental justice (EJ) one of the agency's seven priorities. To accomplish this priority the agency developed Plan EJ 2014, a strategic roadmap for integrating EJ into every EPA decision in order to make environmental justice an integral and permanent part of EPA's day-to-day business.

For the first time in the agency's 42 year history, EPA has laid the cornerstones to fully implement its mission of ensuring environmental protection for all Americans, regardless of race, color, national origin, income or education.

As a whole, Plan EJ 2014's accomplishments are historically sweeping, and environmental justice stands as one of Administrator Lisa P. Jacksons proudest legacies. EPA will continue to build on Plan EJ 2014's accomplishments and advance a new era of environmental justice beyond 2014.
