Climate Protection

A prosperous and sustainable future for Oregon depends on a healthy, stable climate. Oregon Environmental Council works directly with businesses, elected officials and community leaders across the state to take real and immediate action to curb the biggest driver of climate change: carbon pollution and other greenhouse gases. By working now for lasting solutions, OEC helps protect the state against the costly and dangerous effects of extreme weather and air pollution while helping to build a strong clean energy economy for us all.

Take Action now: 

Everything in our lives depends on the climate around us, from food production to water supplies to our health. But our climate is changing and the impacts are appearing across Oregon: extreme weather leading to droughts, floods, and wildfires while changes to our ocean are threatening our oysters and shellfish.

OEC is acting now to reduce carbon pollution and keep global warming from taking away what makes Oregon a great place to live and work. We are working to cut pollution by transitioning to cleaner energy, cleaner fuels, and climate friendly transportation options. The result is cleaner air, a stronger economy, more jobs and healthier, more vibrant communities.
