Environment Council of Rhode Island

...building an ecologically healthy future in a sustainable economy

A Rhode Island Coalition

We are a coalition of organizations and individuals. Our mission is to serve as an effective voice for developing and advocating policies and laws that protect and enhance Rhode Island's environment. We are proud of our long history of environmental advocacy dating back to 1972.

Our most recent Green Report Card was completed on August 18th. It evaluates the environmental records of Rhode Island lawmakers on our priority issues for the 2013 – 2014 current and last years’ legislative sessions, with letter grades issued to individual General Assembly members based on bill votes and sponsorships, along with a qualitative evaluation given of the Governor.
