Taking action on climate change is one of EPA's top priorities. Our Region 10 Strategic Alignment Plan states:

  • We will work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and develop adaptation strategies to address climate change in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.
  • We will incorporate climate change into core program work through analysis of projected impacts on program goals and activities, identify opportunities for migrating greenhouse gases without increasing adverse impacts from other pollutants, and where possible, build ecosystem resilience.
