Green Infrastructure: A Triple Bottom Line Approach to Environmental Justice
- Wednesday, May 15, 2019
- 1:00 - 2:30 PM, EDT
The guiding principle of environmental justice is that all people, regardless of race, color, national origin, or income are entitled to equal protection from environmental risks. Across the United States, a variety of socioeconomic metrics are used to identify communities with environmental justice needs, but all of these communities have one thing in common: populations that suffer a disproportionate share of the negative environmental consequences resulting from industrial, governmental, and commercial operations or policies. In this webcast, Stacey Eriksen with EPA Region 8 and Andy Kricun with the Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority will discuss how the implementation of green infrastructure practices can bring environmental, economic, and social benefits to the communities that need them the most. Regional and local initiatives will highlight the ways in which green infrastructure can manage stormwater pollution, equalize access to environmental protection, and create a healthier environment in which to live and work.
