Environment Oregon Research & Policy Center
Clean water to drink and clean air to breathe; healthy lakes and rivers that are safe for swimming and fishing; preserved open spaces; clean sources of energy that don’t pollute and never run out — all this should be the heritage we leave to future generations. Our staff research the issues, educate the public, and win tangible results.
Investigating problems and crafting solutions
A Road Map to Oil Independence: Oregon’s dependence on oil inflicts a heavy toll on our environment — polluting our waters, destroying natural landscapes and fouling our air. Our report, “Getting Off Oil,” shines a spotlight on the damage caused by our reliance on fossil fuels and sets forth practical policy recommendations for reducing our dirty energy consumption.
Educating the public and making our voices heard
In 2011, we informed thousands of Oregonians about ways to use less energy, save fuel and save money. By taking simple steps at home, the average Oregonian can take control of their energy use, reducing emissions and decreasing our reliance on fossil fuels.
