All New Jersey residents deserve to live, work, learn, and play in a clean and healthy environment. Furthering the Promise Guidance Document propels us toward that goal for all New Jerseyans, regardless of income, race, ethnicity, color or zip code. In accordance with Executive Order 23, this guidance document will help Executive Branch departments and agencies (“the Executive Branch”) to achieve environmental justice when implementing their statutory and regulatory responsibilities. Furthering the Promise provides a framework for realizing the State’s environmental justice goals concertedly across the Executive Branch and in collaboration with the communities we serve.
