The Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (PROFEPA - Procuraduría Federal de Protección al Ambiente) was legally born on June 4th, 1992 as a division of the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT - Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales) with technical and operational autonomy.
We are committed to
• Act with vision.
• Promote a true environmental culture.
• Achieve the highest levels of compliance with environmental laws.
• Reduce the focal points that go against the natural richness of our country (e.g. illegal logging, destruction of flora and fauna and pollution problems)
We know that this fight requires strong involvement of all sectors of society and the three levels of Government. There will be no truce or contemplations with those who insist on destroying the environment.
