About Us

IEC's mission is a just, healthy environment and sustainable future for all Iowans.


We envision a state that is a leader in addressing climate change and environmental justice, and in creating resilient communities that embody Iowans' shared values of respect for all people and the environment. 

Through education, advocacy, and coalition-building, we raise awareness, generate action, and create large-scale change. We work on federal, state, and local public policy issues to ensure a just, healthy environment and sustainable future for all Iowans.

Our employees are experts in their field. They care deeply and work hard to create a safe, healthy environment and a sustainable future for Iowa. Our employees possess both a serious work ethic and a good sense of humor. They bring their knowledge, experience, talent, and passion to the Iowa Environmental Council, and in return, we strive to make them feel valued, heard, and appreciated. We are striving to address existing inequity in our movement. Sound like a good fit? We’d love to meet you.
