Pennsylvania Environmental Council
Pennsylvania Environmental Council is a public non-profit educational corporation that was founded in 1970. The organization is a catalyst for the protection and improvement of Pennsylvania’s environment. PEC brings together the knowledge and viewpoints of civic and environmental groups, businesses, government and academia to develop common understanding on environmental, energy and land use issues; builds coalitions and partnerships to act on these issues; advocates policies, laws and regulations that foster sound environmental practices and responsible management of our natural resources; helps resolve conflicts among different interests; undertakes education and action projects; and provides resources and assistance to diverse communities and the general public.
The Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC) protects and restores the natural and built environments through innovation, collaboration, education and advocacy. PEC believes in the value of partnerships with the private sector, government, communities and individuals to improve the quality of life for all Pennsylvanians.
The mission is accomplished through:
Innovation: PEC seeks to develop new policies, programs and projects that demonstrate unique, but replicable approaches to solving environmental problems using market-based and other non-partisan, science-driven solutions.
Collaboration: PEC believes in the power of partnerships, bringing together people and interests of diverse backgrounds to develop positive solutions to problems that address the concerns of all stakeholders.
Education: PEC promotes the understanding of environmental issues by the public, communities, organizations, public officials and other decision-makers by making unbiased and understandable information available on problems and solutions.
Advocacy: PEC is a catalyst for legislative, regulatory and policy change by public and private decision-makers to advance solutions that are in the best environmental and economic interests of the Commonwealth.
