Agency Mission and Values
There are different mission statements for each division within the agency. Region 8 has a common goal of working toward inclusion although not necessarily their formal statement. They will be looking at statements and how they might improve on them.
Overall DEC Mission Statement:
Mission: "To conserve, improve and protect New York's natural resources and environment and to prevent, abate and control water, land and air pollution, in order to enhance the health, safety and welfare of the people of the state and their overall economic and social well-being."
DEC's goal is to achieve this mission through the simultaneous pursuit of environmental quality, public health, economic prosperity and social well-being, including environmental justice and the empowerment of individuals to participate in environmental decisions that affect their lives.
