Since the Clean Air Act passed in 1970, the EPA has focused on reducing the impacts that both indoor and outdoor air pollution have on individuals’ health. Through setting air quality standards for power plants and factories, creating vehicle fuel efficiency and emissions standards, providing transparent air quality information, and addressing indoor air pollution, the EPA has greatly improved air quality and public health. EPN has created this EPA Core Programs Clean Air fact sheet to provide a detailed understanding of the EPA’s critical role in ensuring citizens are breathing clean air.
