This report presents the results of a study conducted on business and industrys views of environmental justice and companies practices when siting or obtaining permits for facilities located in minority and/or low-income communities. EPA's Office of Environmental Justice (OEJ) commissioned this study, which represents one of the first efforts to capture the views and practices of industry regarding environmental justice in the context of the environmental permitting and siting of facilities. This study provides companies that have addressed environmental justice matters when siting or obtaining permits for a facility an opportunity to share their views, experiences, approaches, and lessons learned on the topic. An underlying goal of the study is, therefore, to help educate officials in other companies on the issues surrounding environmental justice and the measures they can take to avoid or mitigate them.
