FY 2011–2015 EPA Strategic Plan: Achieving Our Vision


Start: 2010-09-30, End: 2015-10-01, Publication: 2010-12-08


The EPA’s FY 2011–2015 Strategic Plan provides a blueprint for accomplishing our priorities for the next five years. This plan presents five strategic goals for advancing our environmental and human-health mission outcomes, accompanied by five cross-cutting fundamental strategies that seek to focus the EPA’s work to meet the growing environmental protection needs of the day. To follow the Administration’s focus on strengthening programs and achieving results, the EPA is implementing near-term Priority Goals that serve as key indicators of progress toward our five strategic goals. We will continue to affirm the core values of science, transparency and the rule of law in addressing these priorities. These are the most urgent issues we must confront through 2015.

As we prepared this strategic plan, we also were responding to one of the nation’s worst environmental disasters, the Deepwater Horizon BP oil spill, which seriously affected the ecological and economic health of the Gulf Coast’s communities. A sustained, effective recovery and restoration effort will require significant commitments of resources, scientific and technical expertise and coordination with a range of partners in the months and years ahead. This strategic plan offers a solid foundation for the EPA’s long-term response to the impacts of the BP oil spill. As President Obama has said, our government will do “everything in our power to protect our natural resources, compensate those who have been harmed, rebuild what has been damaged, and help this region persevere like it has done so many times before.” The EPA will work tirelessly to address the environmental and human-health effects and set the Gulf Coast on the path to recovery.
