Environmental Justice

Tangled, metal swing set.

“Environmental Justice" is the fair treatment of people of all races, cultures, and incomes with respect to the development, adoption, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.

The Attorney General is particularly concerned that local governments, in permitting new projects, consider potentially significant environmental impacts on communities already burdened with pollution, as required by the California Environmental Quality Act. The Attorney General also continues to lead in the fight against global warming; as a recent state agency report notes, global warming will hit our most vulnerable citizens the hardest.

The Attorney General considers environmental justice in all of her actions and uses the legal tools available to ensure that all Californians enjoy the benefits of a healthy, safe environment.
