EPA's Pacific Northwest Regional Office (Region 10) focuses on EPA's work and mission in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Pacific Northwest Indian Country. Environmental focus areas include air quality, ecosystems, Superfund, water quality, and waste and chemical management. These issues are addressed through enforcement and compliance, grants, environmental data and assessment, environmental education, and environmental justice.

In spring 2010, after a competitive bidding process, EPA awarded a new lease for its Region 10 Office to the same building in which it was already located: Park Place, a 21-story office building in downtown Seattle. EPA and the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) collaborated on the new lease, which incorporated requirements for sustainable features from EPA's Best Practice (Environmental) Lease Provisions; included provisions to pursue compliance with Executive Order (EO) 13423, the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA), the Environmental Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005), and the Guiding Principles for Federal Leadership in High Performance and Sustainable Buildings; and required the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC's) LEED®Exit EPA Disclaimer certification for new construction or existing buildings.
