The Environment and Public Health Institute is a non-profit think tank that addresses the environmental and health threats of our time. When others turn to politicians for solutions, we look to engineers and entrepreneurs for answers.

Some of our work is presented in reports, essays and briefing papers covering current topics. You can access all publications here.
