U.S. Environmental Protection Agency International Trade Engagements

EPA’s work to improve air quality, expand access to clean water, and protect vulnerable communities from toxic pollution extends from across North America to nearly 180 nations worldwide. Through collaborative efforts with partners from around the world, EPA is working to facilitate commerce, promote sustainable development, protect vulnerable populations and engage diplomatically around the world.

Both domestically and globally, protecting human health and the environment is essential to sustainable economic growth and development. EPA supports these goals by:

  • with domestic and international partners,
  • technical analysis and capacity building assistance through knowledge-sharing and best practices, and
  • the dissemination and use of environment-friendly technologies and environmentally-supportive investments and financial instruments.
