Working to protect the environment

PNWA works to protect the environment while preserving the economic value of resources affected by regional development, ESA-listed species, Biological Opinions, Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act and other environmental processes. PNWA policies balance the needs of trade, tourism, and economic development with environmental concerns and requirements. Individual PNWA member projects and efforts reflect this need for balance, allowing the Northwest to be environmentally responsible while remaining competitive in the commercial arena.
