Several agencies of considerable proportions are among locations with high pollution rate. It reveals an increase in concerns about the most important element of all, which sustains all life and its not few necessities.

In US, EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), a federal agency with goals like human health and environment protection: land, sea and air. It was established by Robert Nixon in 1970, and now has near twenty thousand workers.

From EPA:

Since its inception, EPA has been working for a cleaner, healthier environment for the American people.

Europe has EEA (European Environment Agency), which started its work in 1994, established in Copenhagen (capital of Denmark) with 33 member countries.

From EEA:

To help the Community and member countries make informed decisions about improving the environment, integrating environmental considerations into economic policies and moving towards sustainability

The Republic of China has the EPA (Environmental Protection Administration), in India is the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and others.

Saudi Arabia works in this aspect through Saudi Environmental Society. Australia did create very recently, in 2013, the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities.

It's not a secret that these areas are between the most unsustainable ones, and there aren't expectations of fast changes. Maybe it's time to accept that the measures and efforts aren't by far enough and the problem is getting bigger each day.

A good indication to assign more importance to the individual role. Society must start to consider some realities unacceptable and ask others to modify behaviors because the environment is everyone's house.
