This Report summarizes the Department’s progress toward achieving the goals of EO 12898 during fiscal year 2012, with particular attention to four areas of interagency focus enumerated in the EJ MOU:
• implementation of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA);
• implementation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended;
• impacts from climate change; and
• impacts from commercial transportation and supporting infrastructure (i.e., “goods movement”).
DHS is proud to be an active participant in the vigorous interagency effort to incorporate environmental justice values as it keeps the nation safe, secure, and resilient.
