Environmental justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies. Fair treatment means no group of people should bear a disproportionate share of the negative environmental consequences resulting from industrial, governmental and commercial operations or policies”.

Dr. Sheriff received his B.S in Foreign Service at Georgetown Univ. He received his MS and PhD in Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of Maryland. Before joining the ASU faculty, he taught at Columbia University and served as an economist at several federal agencies including the State Department, White House Council on Environmental Quality, Environmental Protection Agency, and Department of Agriculture. Prof. Sheriff’s research focus is on the distribution of benefits and costs of environmental, natural resource, and climate policy.
