About Us

The Environmental Protection Alliance (EPA) is a coalition of environmentally conscientious financial institutions, pension funds, individuals and organizations committed to the preservation and conservation of the Earth’s resources and our environment.

The EPA advocates for environmental awareness and promotes policies that protect planetary health to help slow down or reverse some of our most pressing environmental issues.

Industries and their respective operating and financial companies must be held accountable for the adverse environmental effects of their operations and the EPA supports policies, practices and partnerships that promote and cause environmentally responsible behaviors/actions.

To enhance our effectiveness, the members of EPA generally focus their efforts on a single environmental initiative/campaign- usually one that is connected to a current legislative agenda.

  • With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you’re connected to the sea. No matter where on Earth you live. Most of the oxygen in the atmosphere is generated by the sea.

  • It is a curious situation that the sea, from which life first arose, should now be threatened by the activities of one form of that life. But the sea, thought changed in a sinister way, will continue to exist: the threat is rather to life itself.
