Our environmental policy program covers a range of environmental issues by managing projects where partnership is needed most to reach a solution. For environmental leaders across all sectors, Environmental Initiative is the catalyst for finding common ground and creative problem solving.

Through our policy program we strive to improve the health of our environment, economy, and communities by seeking and using the best of all ideas. While advocacy and litigation can be powerful policymaking and policy-influencing tools, we develop politically viable solutions informed by expertise from all sectors.

At Environmental Initiative, we pair our policy expertise with a range of techniques to help develop, advance, or implement environmental policy solutions. Our services include education and event programming, gathering stakeholder input, group facilitation, and consensus-building.
