EIP is a nonprofit organization established in March of 2002 by former EPA enforcement attorneys to advocate for more effective enforcement of environmental laws. Comprised of public interest lawyers, analysts, investigators, and community organizers, EIP has three goals: (1) to provide objective analyses of how the failure to enforce or implement environmental laws increases pollution and affects the public’s health; (2) to hold federal and state agencies, as well as individual corporations, accountable for failing to enforce or comply with environmental laws; and (3) to help local communities obtain the protection of environmental laws.
