Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Climate Change, Clean Energy and Clean Air

In our Climate Change, Clean Energy and Clean Air program we seek to reduce Missouri’s dependence on coal-burning for our energy needs. We monitor actions taken by federal, state and local governments that will impact the quality of the air breathed by the citizens of Missouri and surrounding states, and that impact the type of energy made by utilities. Great Rivers advocates for increased energy efficiency, solar and wind. We work in the Public Service Commission and the courts on these issues.

Population(s) Served

Great Rivers is committed to monitoring permitting actions for sites proposed for development that will unfairly burden minority or low income populations. Great Rivers has evaluated proposed developments to determine whether permitting authorities have unfairly targeted disadvantaged populations. Great Rivers has assisted residents in Kansas City, Grandview, and the City of St. Louis in environmental justice work.

Population(s) Served

Great Rivers works to protect the last remaining wetlands and floodplains in Missouri by advocacy and, as a last resort, litigation.  We successfully opposed the proposed building of a "1000-year super-levee" for the Missouri River at Jefferson City, and are working to stop the proposed New Madrid levee.

Population(s) Served

Great Rivers seeks to protect and preserve the waters of Missouri and surrounding states. Our water quality program begins with monitoring proposed federal, state and local actions that will adversely affect water quality. Great Rivers is frequently involved in matters that adversely impact water quality. This includes assisting environmental groups, citizens’ organizations and individuals in their legal challenges designed to protect the quality of the waters.

Population(s) Served

Our land use program consists of assisting environmental groups, citizens groups and individuals in their efforts to preserve and protect open space, forests and wilderness areas. Great Rivers issues comments on proposed rules that may affect environmentally sensitive areas, and as a last resort, represents environmental groups in litigation to enforce the laws.
