EPA Strategic Plan
FY 2011-2015 Strategic Plan
The Strategic Plan provides a blueprint for advancing EPA's priorities and mission to protect human health and the environment. EPA submitted the Plan on September 30, 2010 to the Congress and to the Office of Management and Budget.
The Plan identifies the measurable environmental and human health outcomes the public can expect over the next five years and describes how we intend to achieve those results. The Plan represents a commitment to our core values of science, transparency, and the rule of law in managing our programs.
The Plan identifies five strategic goals to guide the Agency’s work:
- Goal 1: Taking Action on Climate Change and Improving Air Quality
- Goal 2: Protecting America’s Waters
- Goal 3: Cleaning Up Communities and Advancing Sustainable Development
- Goal 4: Ensuring the Safety of Chemicals and Preventing Pollution
- Goal 5: Enforcing Environmental Laws
The Plan also introduces the following five cross-cutting fundamental strategies which set clear expectations for changing the way EPA does business in achieving its results. For more information on how EPA is implementing these strategies please view our FY 2013 Action Plans. You can also learn about the progress we made towards achieving these strategies last year by viewing our FY 2012 Annual Progress Reports.
