A Decade of Environmental Progress
Times change, and so has the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Our overall goal is the same clean air, clean water, clean land. But we're a different agency than we were 10 years ago. A new emphasis on innovation has changed the way we think and operate, leading to real environmental improvements and real reductions in costs. Regulatory programs are still the essential core of our environmental system, but innovation has provided new tools to meet future demands.
