Approaching environmental advocacy from the perspective of a Council, we here at the OEC work hard to collaborate and coordinate with partners as often as we can to accomplish our goals of healthier air, land and water.  While individual issues frequently bring together natural partners, we strive to collaborate consistently with various coalitions year-round. 


RE-AMP is an engaged and active network of nonprofits and foundations working on climate change and energy policy in an eight-state region, including Ohio, in the upper Midwest.

RE-AMP logoThe organizations engaged in the RE-AMP network work together, through various strategies and tactics, to transform the upper Midwest energy sector into a model for clean, efficient and safe energy use. 

All this work is done with a larger goal in mind: reduce the causes of climate change by 80% by the year 2030.

Ohio Environmental Council is proud to be part of RE-AMP and collaborate with other Ohio-based RE-AMP members, as well as regional partners on projects and campaigns that fall under one or more of RE-AMP’s working groups:

  • Transportation
  • Clean Energy
  • Clean Up Coal
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Climate Change Solutions

Each of these working groups are dedicated to developing solutions to environmental and energy problems common to the Midwest, nation, and the world.
