Washington Environmental Council is a nonprofit, statewide advocacy organization that has been driving positive change to solve Washington's most critical environmental challenges since 1967.
To protect, restore, and sustain Washington's environment.
WEC was instrumental in passing (and now enforcing) the foundational laws that help keep Washington's environment healthy: the State Environmental Policy Act, the State Superfund Law, the Growth Management Act, and the Shoreline Management Act.
WEC builds power for the environmental movement in Washington. We bring the environmental community together through the Environmental Priorities Coalition. Each year, over 20 groups that make up the Coalition select up to four issues to advance in the state legislature. Thanks to our focused power, we have been able to achieve groundbreaking solutions - from promoting clean cars and greener buildings to setting responsible limits on climate pollution to eliminating dangerous toxins in children's products.
Through our Voter Education Program, WEC helps educate and empower environmental voters and tackle ballot initiatives that would have an impact on our environment. We worked to pass the Citizens' Clean Energy Initiative, I-937, and we worked to defeat Initiative 933, which would have allowed irresponsible development across out state.
WEC builds and leads partnerships, mobilizes the public, engages decisionmakers and take legal action to enact and enforce environmental protection policy and ensure a sustainable future.
