About Us

The mission of the Ohio Environmental Council is to secure healthy air, land, and water for all who call Ohio home. 

We help individuals, communities, and businesses go green, save money, and live healthier.

Using legislative initiatives, legal action, scientific principles, and statewide partnerships, we secure a healthier environment for Ohio's families and communities.

The Ohio Environmental Council is the state's most comprehensive, effective and respected environmental advocate for a healthier, more sustainable Ohio.

Our experts work daily to restore, protect and strengthen the quality of life for families and communities—from the air we breathe and the water we drink to the food we eat and natural resources we enjoy.
