GLRPPR Sector Resource: Environmental Justice Factsheet

Title:
Environmental Justice Factsheet

Abstract:
Environmental Justice (EJ) is defined as the equal treatment and involvement of all people in environmental decision making. Inspired by the Civil Rights movement, EJ became widespread in the 1980's at the intersection of environmentalism and social justice. Environmental injustice is experienced through heightened exposure to pollution and corresponding health risks, limited access to adequate environmental services, and loss of land and resource rights. EJ and sustainability are interdependent and both necessary to create an equitable environment for all.
