The New Mexico Environment Department was established under the provisions set forth in the Department of the Environment Act by the 40th. Legislature, enacted July 1, 1991 (Laws of 1991, Chapter 25).
The Department’s mission is to provide the highest quality of life throughout the state by promoting a safe, clean and productive environment.
In meeting the goals of our Mission, we are committed to:
Providing clear articulation of our goals, standards, and expectations in a professional manner so that employees and the public may make informed decisions and be actively involved in setting priorities,
Promoting environmental awareness through the practice of open and direct communication and sound decision-making by carrying out the mandates and initiatives of the department in a fair and consistent manner.
The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) is committed to protecting New Mexico’s environment and the health of our citizens. Every day, our approximately 650 employees are working toward this goal, whether by interacting with citizens, regulating industry or running scientific tests on environmental samples. All of these efforts reflect the Department’s comprehensive, integrated program of outreach, permitting, inspection and enforcement. This approach is outlined in the Department's strategic plan.
The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) strives to improve its performance in all areas. Performance measures are developed that allows the Department to track how we are doing in protecting New Mexico's environmental health, in water and waste management and in promoting employee health and safety. The Performance Measure Report is produced on a quarterly basis and will be posted on the Department's website at the end of each quarter.
