The Department of Environmental Protection, commonly abbreviated as DEP or EnPro is a second-level Ivalician Cabinet department, under the Department of Domesticities, charged with protecting wildlife and the environment, by writing and enforcing regulations based on laws passed by Congress. It is chiefly responsible for Ivalice's national environmental policy, and is generally credited for the environmentally-friendly conditions in the nation today.

Overview

The Environmental Protection Department employs 25,000 people in headquarters program offices, 4 state offices outside of the Ivalician Federal District, and 32 field research laboratories across the country. More than half of its staff are engineers, scientists, and environmental protection specialists; other groups include legal, public affairs, financial, and computer specialists.

The department conducts environmental assessment, research, and education. It has the primary responsibility for setting and enforcing national standards under a variety of environmental laws, in consultation with state and municipal governments. Unlike most other cabinet departments, the Environmental Protection Department usually enforces most regulations nationwide, rather than federally delegating enforcement responsibilities to the states. Department enforcement powers include fines, sanctions, and other measures.

The agency also works with industries and all levels of government in a wide variety of voluntary pollution prevention programs and energy conservation efforts.
