Environmental protection is considered to be one of the key challenges of the twenty-first century. However, measurement of success of various actions to enhance environmental protection is a major challenge. This paper reports the results of a major effort to develop metrics for various aspects of environmental protection by convening several panels of independent experts to develop metrics and apply them to selected grants awarded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to certain nonprofit organizations. These metrics cover human and ecological health, concentration of pollutants in environmental media, emission of pollutants, and public information. The results of these efforts were presented in a hearing convened by the U.S. House of Representatives.
