To promote public awareness and action to protect the environment to ensure the wise use of natural resources for sustainable development

The Portland Environment Protection Association (PEPA), was founded in June 1988 and is an association of community organizations, service clubs and civic organizations, bound together by our common interest to protect the natural environment of the parish of Portland specifically and the country of Jamaica in general.

The Organization is listed in the International directory of Environmental Non-Government Organizations, ENGO's.

PEPA came about through deep concern from citizens who were cognizant of the need to preserve the natural environment and associated resources.
