    Now, you can find out the latest on these and other emerging issues in environmental management through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Policy, Economics, and Innovation. This organization supports EPA’s mission through economic analysis and by promoting innovation to achieve better, more cost-effective environmental and public health protection.

    Established in 2000, the Office of Policy, Economics, and Innovation is a sign that EPA is changing with the times. Today, we find ourselves working in a world confronted by a more challenging set of environmental issues, like global climate change, stratospheric ozone depletion, and nonpoint source pollution. Fortunately, we also have the benefit of more sophisticated science, technology, and policy tools. And we have a more knowledgeable and environmentally-conscious society that is not only able, but increasingly interested in helping to solve problems. As we think about what these factors mean for EPA, we see a need to extend EPA’s capabilities beyond the traditional regulatory functions of the past. Regulations always have been and always will be central to our mission. But we believe the greatest gains in environmental quality in the years ahead will come from integrating regulatory approaches with voluntary actions that encourage environmental stewardship.
