Who We Are

Business, Labor, and Public Leaders Working Together

In 1973, Governor Edmund G. “Pat” Brown founded the California Council for Environmental and Economic Balance (CCEEB) to bring together the perspectives of business, labor, and public leaders in pursuit of balanced and effective policy solutions.

Since its founding, CCEEB has tackled the toughest environmental problems facing California, including water quality, transportation, energy, air quality, hazardous waste management, land use, and climate change.

The CCEEB Board of Directors reflects our spirit of collaboration. The 60-member board is split evenly among each of the council’s three constituencies: business, labor, and public leaders.

Because of our history of credibility, fairness, and excellence, no other association enjoys the same broad spectrum of membership. CCEEB is a nonprofit and nonpartisan association. Our reputation rests on our ideas; CCEEB does not make political contributions of any kind.
