A Clean Environment is Good for Business: Defend the EPA

The Environmental Protection Agency is critical to ensuring a sustainable economy. Massive proposed cuts to its budget will increase impacts to clean water and air, decrease funding for pollution control and clean up, decrease testing and monitoring of harmful chemicals, and allow our climate to warm unchecked. When businesses pollute, the costs of these actions are paid for by others in decreased productivity and profits and loss of jobs. Much is said about the costs of regulations, but it is widely known that the cost to implement these rules are often vastly outweighed by the overall benefits to society.  Additionally, uncertainty about a healthy environment and healthy employees makes it difficult to invest in the future.

The EPA provides the rules and enforcement that give businesses certainty and creates a level playing field for all. Join our efforts to tell Congress to fully fund the EPA.
