Climate Action & Green Jobs.

Washington Environmental Council helped lead the effort to pass Climate Action & Green Jobs; the law was the first in the country to link emissions reduction policy with measures to invest in job training for the new clean energy economy. Beyond advancing progressive environmental policy, the effort to pass this bill shows the power of collaboration within and beyond the environmental community. WEC is building on this success by continuing our close collaboration with Climate Solutions, with whom we lead a broad coalition that is committed to passing strong policies to reduce global warming pollution, decrease our dependence on fossil fuels, and transition Washington to a clean energy economy.
