2019-2020 Georgia Environmental Scorecard

The 2020 Environmental Scorecard evaluates how legislators voted on key environmental issues over the course of the two year legislative session. These votes include everything from addressing coal ash to moving to protect Georgians from toxics. We hold them responsible for the actions that they took to protect or harm our environment and citizens. We're pushing for change that will ensure a safer and healthier environment for Georgia.

The fact sheets have been crafted to illustrate the importance, challenges and opportunities of 11 technologies and strategies. Each fact sheet includes at least one case study of effective action on college campuses, as well as a list of resources.
