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 Earth and its resources.

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 environmentally responsible behaviors and actions.

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

But, sadly, it has been widely documented that the global marine environment and its resources are being over-exploited at an ever - increasing rate and scale. Growth in this sector- blue growth - must be balanced and sustainable.

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.
