Welcome

The Environmental Bureau of Investigation (EBI) is dedicated to the protection of public resources through the application and enforcement of environmental laws.

Formed by the Energy Probe Research Foundation in 1996, EBI has investigated and prosecuted environmental crimes, assisted individuals and groups in their fight against polluters, developed public education tools to empower citizens to stop pollution, and published and publicized information on pollution sources and sites.

In recent years, EBI has focussed on maintaining its on-line Citizens Guide to Environmental Investigation and Private Prosecution, which provides the public with advice on researching and documenting pollution in their communities, on determining whether the contaminants violate a law or regulation, on pressuring governments to take action, and on starting legal proceedings if governments refuse to act.
