Environmental Justice (EJ) is based on the principle that all people have a right to be protected from environmental hazards and to live in and enjoy a clean and healthful environment. EJ is the equal protection and meaningful involvement of all people with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies and the equitable distribution of environmental benefits.
Here, you will find information on the actions the Department of Public Utilities (DPU) is taking to promote EJ as well as links to other helpful resources. The DPU is currently finalizing its EJ strategy. To access the DPU’s draft EJ strategy, click the featured box below.
