Mission and Vision

Advance policies that improve the environment and protect public health, while maintaining a strong economy and competitive businesses. Foster collaboration among business, labor, and public leaders to develop innovative policy solutions.

Healthy Environment, Strong Economy

Founded in 1973 by Governor Edmund G. “Pat” Brown, CCEEB has been California’s leading voice for a strong, vibrant economy and high quality of life balanced with a healthy environment and sustainable communities. To ensure all voices are heard, CCEEB relies on the practice of dialogue and consensus building among its members and other stakeholders.

CCEEB is organized around issue-specific projects at the state and regional levels. Our projects track hundreds of legislative bills each year and dozens of regulatory proceedings. Members receive timely updates, expert analysis, and hear from a wide range of industry, labor, and regulatory perspectives at our meetings.

Currently, CCEEB manages three statewide projects, two regional air projects, and three special projects. When it is time to act, our team of policy experts and advocates takes CCEEB’s message to state lawmakers, agency decision makers, and other stakeholders.
