Commissions and councils

Learn about the work of the Environmental Justice Advisory Commission and the Food Policy Advisory Council.

Environmental Justice Advisory Commission

The Environmental Justice Advisory Commission (EJAC) works to ensure that all Philadelphia residents have a livable community, free of environmental toxins and hazards. This means:

  • Clean air, land, and water
  • Healthy, fresh, and culturally appropriate foods
  • Homes, jobs, and neighborhoods free from pollutants and toxins
  • Communities that are resilient to the impacts of climate change, such as flooding and extreme heat

EJAC emphasizes leadership and input by those most affected by environmental injustice, like lower-wealth communities and communities of color.

The commission consists of Philadelphia residents who provide recommendations to the mayor, City Council, and City agencies.

Food Policy Advisory Council

The Philadelphia Food Policy Advisory Council (FPAC) connects Philadelphians and their local government to create a more just food system.

The council’s goal is to help all residents access food that is:

  • Healthy.
  • Sustainable.
  • Culturally appropriate.
  • Local.
  • Fair.

The Office of Sustainability administratively houses FPAC by fundraising, managing staff, and securing resources. For more information, visit the Philadelphia Food Policy Advisory Council’s (FPAC) website.
