The EQB’s mission is to enhance Minnesota’s environmental quality for current and future generations by leading interagency work to advance meaningful public engagement and facilitate informed decision-making on critical environmental issues. With the help of staff from several state agencies, the 2019 Minnesota Environment and Energy Report Card was prepared to provide a snapshot of Minnesota’s environment, providing valuable information for the public and policy-makers.

The 2019 report focuses on five key areas of Minnesota’s environment: climate, energy, air, water and land. Each section presents three metrics that help assess the state of the environment. Metrics either have a red, yellow, or green score depending on whether state goals for progress are being met. Metrics were selected through a Results Based Accountability process; and are the same indicators used in the 2017 report.
