INDIANA'S LEADING ADVOCATE FOR INDUSTRY
THE IMPACT OF ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE
Indiana manufacturers located in "environmental justice communities" could see an impact from new permits and rules coming from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM).
WHAT IS ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE?
Environmental justice communities are defined as overburdened communities based on a variety of data points. Most commonly they are located in neighborhoods with a high population of minority residents who are low income earners and possess a lower level of education with limited employment opportunities, among other things. The EPA is cracking down on state agencies and asking them to take aim at their permitting structures, which will directly impact industry. Additionally, EPA is mobilizing local communities to stop projects and tie up development and expansion of industrial properties using Title 6 violations (which are civil rights violations). This could result in projects and permits being tied up in the courts for years.
