Abstract
EPA Region 2 is committed to providing equal protection to all communities within its jurisdiction. Accordingly, the Region continues to incorporate the principles and tenets of environmental justice (EJ) into its managerial and programmatic activities. The EPA Region 2 Interim EJ Policy serves as an instrument for managers and staff to identify, target, and be responsive to EJ concerns raised by segments of the population that may experience disproportionately high and adverse human health and environmental burdens. The document is comprised of a regional EJ policy statement along with the following set of guidelines: (1) Conducting EJ Analyses; (2) EJ and Permitting; EJ and Enforcement; (3) EJ and Community Involvement; and (4) EJ and the EPA Superfund Program. By implementing the Interim EJ Policy document, the Region positions itself towards ensuring its communities and stakeholders will receive equal protection and move towards liveable, sustainable communities.
