Bringing a Climate and Environmental Justice Lens to the Massachusetts State Auditor’s Office

Massachusetts residents deserve a state government that is working efficiently and effectively to reduce pollution and emissions, to prepare the Commonwealth for the inevitable impacts of climate change, and to ensure that resources are delivered to the neighborhoods and residents that already bear the brunt of pollution and more severe weather. As State Auditor, Chris Dempsey will incorporate a climate and environmental justice lens into audits of key state agencies and programs. By including representatives of environmental-justice communities in the auditing review process, the Auditor’s Office will ensure that recommendations incorporate the voices of those most impacted by pollution and climate change.
