This essay searches to make a contribution to the theoretical and conceptual debate that exists on the environmental public policy. By this reason, this paper does not aim to take into account specific case studies and/or defined time periods of analysis. This contribution is developed around some theoretical arguments and references that make environmental public policy an adequate government tool to find solutions or to correct some kind of deficiencies into the natural environment. In this way, the importance of public policy and the environmental institutions are exposed to generate and maintain a good governmental performance, as well as effective and efficient detonators of results, and most of all tangible to the society. It is also analyzed subjects such as development, sustainable development, government, and ecological modernization by their importance to the creation and implementation of such policies.
