President Biden signed an executive order Friday aimed at ensuring federal decisions consider "environmental justice," which addresses higher pollution burdens often faced by communities of color and people living in poverty.

Driving the news: The new executive order directs agencies to identify and address data and science gaps, to help better understand cumulative environmental impacts.

Details: Agencies will "consider measures to address and prevent disproportionate and adverse environmental and health impacts on communities," such as the cumulative impacts of pollution and climate change," according to a White House fact sheet.
