About BCEC

Mission Statement

A grassroots advocacy association, the Boston Clean Energy Coalition (BCEC) works to accelerate efforts in Boston to transition to a clean, green economy and is deeply committed to uplifting equity and creating inclusive community processes. BCEC currently focuses on promoting net-zero-carbon standards for the built environment while advocating for halting the expansion of fracked-gas and other fossil-fuel infrastructure. We believe these goals can be achieved only by fostering collaboration among all sectors, including the City, private developers, community stakeholders, architects, financial investors, academia, labor, environmentalists, and faith-based organizations. We seek strong, democratic, political leadership and a process that develops sound public policy, recognizing that both require constant vigilance and a concerned eye on our future.
