Abstract Environmental justice (EJ) describes the commitment of the government to avoid placing disproportionately high and adverse burdens on the human health and environment of minority populations or low-income populations through its policies, programs, or activities. Executive Order 12898, Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low Income Populations (E.O. 12898), was established in 1994 and directs federal agencies to make achieving environmental justice part of their mission. This Report summarizes the agency's progress toward achieving the goals of E.O. 12898. As called for by the EJ MOU, this Report addresses: (1) Implementation of the National Environmental Policy Act; (2) Implementation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; (3) Impacts from climate change; and (4) Impacts from commercial transportation and supporting infrastructure (goods movement). This Report also addresses participation in interagency collaboration on environmental justice issues. Subsequent annual reports will also address DHS progress in implementing the agency's Strategy based on established performance measures, public comments received on implementation of the Strategy, and any updates or revisions to the Strategy.
