Public Policy Change

Oregon Environmental Council advances effective public policies that safeguard our future. Since our founding in 1968, our staff and volunteers have worked every legislative session to protect the Oregon we love. Together, we have a history of results.

See our legislative recaps for  2017, 2016 and 2015

Oregon Environmental Council advances and supports legislation that meets these standards:

  • Lasting solutions that get at the source of Oregon’s environmental problems
  • Creative solutions that are based on sound scientific evidence, economic analysis and life cycle thinking
  • Equitable solutions that respect the needs of Oregon’s diverse communities
  • Solutions that support a highly functioning economy

We provide leadership and opportunity for all Oregonians to create and implement a vision for a healthy environment.
