About Us

The Clean Air Campaign of the Illinois Sierra Club works
to ...

  • Restore and protect clean and healthy air for all residents throughout Illinois and minimize the state’s contribution to air pollution in downwind states;
  • Reduce, and eliminate where possible, the emissions of the most toxic and persistent air pollutants, such as mercury and dioxin, that are threatening the Great Lakes ecosystem, including our food supply and wildlife populations;
  • Stabilize, and begin to reduce, statewide emissions of global warming pollution and minimize the threat that global warming poses to the Great Lakes ecosystem; and
  • Build public support for state and federal action to restore and protect healthy air throughout Illinois and hold elected officials accountable for actions affecting clean air.
