Environment

Protecting public health, our water supply, and our air quality is top priority for the League of Women Voters of New Jersey. As citizens of the world we must protect our planet from the physical, economic and public health effects of climate change while also providing pathways to economic prosperity.

Our Work

Since the 1960s, we have been at the forefront of efforts to protect air, land and water resources. Our approach to environmental protection and pollution control is one of problem solving. The League’s environmental goals aim to prevent ecological degradation, and to reduce and control pollutants before they go down the sewer, up the chimney or into the landfill.

Fighting Climate Change

With a commitment to renewable energy, the League of Women Voters stands ready to hold polluters accountable.

Protecting Our Water

We work to protect our water supply, tackling a number of threats including pipelines and pollution.

Preserving Open Space

From the Pinelands to the Highlands, from farmlands to our shore, the League believes New Jersey’s diverse and beautiful spaces need to be preserved and protected.
