New Changes at WEI: Wisconsin Environmental Initiative
In 1995, the Wisconsin Environmental Initiative formed to bring together
businesses, government and citizen groups in a neutral forum to
address the state's key environmental issues. Seventeen years later, our founding mission remains intact. Today, we
work with stakeholders to craft workable policies and develop the tools
to give Wisconsin businesses and communities credible market
distinction AND preserve the state's resources and environment.
