Welcome to the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA), the only state Cabinet-level office in the country that oversees both environmental and energy agencies. In putting energy and environment under one roof, Governor Patrick set a course toward a clean energy future, and the six agencies under EEA are following that direction with vigor, in close collaboration with the Legislature and many outside partners.

The agencies and offices of EEA also preserve open space and working landscapes; enforce pollution laws; review the environmental impact of major real estate and infrastructure developments; enhance the state’s role in energy conservation and production, and provide opportunities for outdoor recreation and access at the parks, beaches, and farms that make Massachusetts such a wonderful place to live, work, and play. Explore this website to discover what the agencies of EEA do to steward our precious natural resources and create a cleaner, more beautiful Commonwealth for residents and visitors alike -- and take advantage of all that Massachusetts has to offer!
