The Council is dedicated to protecting and defending everyone’s right to breathe clean air. The Council works through a broad array of related sustainability and public health initiatives, using public education, community action, government oversight, and enforcement of environmental laws. The Council was founded in 1967 and made a name for itself by the mid-1970s as the result of two major achievements: establishing and distributing a daily regional air quality index report and forcing Pennsylvania to implement its vehicle emissions testing program. The Council has now grown to include 8,000 members and expanded its programmatic focus to include global warming, environmental health, energy, climate change, waste and recycling, transportation, and children’s health / environmental issues.
