The SacMetro AQMD seeks to ensure fair treatment of all people regardless of race, color, national origin or income, in the development of environmental policies and plans that affect the places people live, work, play and learn.
The SacMetro AQMD Board of Directors adopted an Environmental Justice (EJ) Policy in April 2006 and a corresponding Implementation Plan in July 2006. As of August 2008, implementation of the plan was complete.
