The California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA) was created in 1991 by Governor's Executive Order. The six Boards, Departments and Office were placed within the Cal/EPA "umbrella" to create a cabinet level voice for the protection of human health and the environment and to assure the coordinated deployment of State resources. Our mission is to restore, protect and enhance the environment, to ensure public health, environmental quality and economic vitality.
The term "Cal/EPA" is used both to refer to the Office of the Secretary and to the entire agency (the Office of the Secretary and the constituent entities). For more information on the Office of the Secretary, see ContactUs.
This page links you to information about the agency and its staff and headquarters building in downtown Sacramento.
