Healthy Communities

Every Californian should have the opportunity to live in a community that is healthy and safe. This means that individuals must be able to make informed decisions about the environment in which they live, work, and play, and local governments must make informed choices in the planning and development of communities. Much of the Attorney General’s environmental work seeks to protect and ensure informed decision making.

  • As the chief enforcer of Proposition 65, a unique and powerful law in California that requires companies to publicly disclose chemical risks, the Attorney General is in a special position to ensure that people have the information they need to make informed decisions about the chemicals to which they and their families and communities are exposed
  • Monitoring companies’ claims about the environmental benefits of their products, and taking steps to stop any unsubstantiated claims (a practice known as greenwashing), is another way the Attorney General helps maintain healthy communities through the flow of accurate information.
  • The Attorney General participates in the Health in All Policies Task Force, a multi-agency task force that looks for ways to promote a healthier and more sustainable California.
  • By making environmental justice a priority within the Office’s environmental work, including its work under the California Environmental Quality Act, the Attorney General is committed to bringing the environmental benefits of informed decision making to everyone.
