Description Ecology is working to implement a new air quality initiative aimed at expanding air quality monitoring and reducing air pollution in communities that bear a disproportionate burden of pollution. This environmental justice focus is a key part of the Climate Commitment Act, the 2021 law that establishes a cap-and-invest program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Washington.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
