ECOSS is a community-based non-profit organization committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. Founded in 1996, we work to protect our region’s natural resources, assist local businesses and provide information to communities most impacted by environmental inequities. We work with government agencies, municipalities, businesses, neighborhoods, and individuals to drive environmentally sustainable solutions. ECOSS is uniquely positioned with technical and cultural expertise, native language capacity, community trust and accountability, and cross-sector relationships to effectively address critical environmental issues. ECOSS staff is deeply trusted in the community and understands the root causes of environmental and social issues that communities face. The team is made up of a diverse set of native- and non-native-English speakers, immigrants & refugees. Our staff speaks more than 12 languages. We work as insiders who have established strong trusting relationships within communities, instead of outsiders working to get in. This grassroots approach enhances our ability to make real connections, to meet people where they are, and in their native language. We empower frontline communities through programs that address environmental equity and social justice, solid waste management, pollution prevention, green infrastructure, transportation, clean energy, clean water, clean air, and environmental access for all.
