Our Values

Oregon Environmental Council has a vision of a better Oregon.

An Oregon where we all live healthier lives because our air, water and land will be clean; our food will be sustainably produced; and the products, energy and transportation that make our modern life possible will be free of toxic chemicals and safe for our environment and climate.

An Oregon where urban and rural Oregonians will thrive in a sustainable, low-carbon economy; where our businesses, governments, non-profit institutions—and individual Oregonians—will safeguard the natural world that is essential to our health, our wealth and our quality of life.

Founded in 1968, Oregon Environmental Council has a long history of securing environmental protections that support the health of every Oregonian and the health of this place we call home. The actions we take are based on our Values and Beliefs and our Strategic Direction.
