The O2 Utah Foundation is an environmental nonprofit dedicated to a greener Utah. Our mission is to clean our state's air, protect our public lands, and eliminate our contributions to climate change by developing visionary policy and then strategically organizing to implement that policy. 

The O2 Utah Foundation was formed at the end of 2020 for two reasons: 

1. To create specific legislative policy.

Utah lacks concrete legislative policy in key areas like improving air quality or addressing climate change. Without a destination or a roadmap it's no surprise that we have been lost for so long.

2. To implement campaign-style organizing.

Political campaigns actively seek volunteers and activists. This style of organizing, if used year-round, can build the critical support needed to make better policy happen.



We are kicking things off with the development of a first-of-its-kind policy proposal to reduce pollution emissions—and carbon contributions—by 50% by 2030 along the Wasatch Front.

Next, we will enact this change for our air and climate with year-round, campaign-style community organizing in key locations that have the ear of Utah's policymakers

We support the charitable work of O2 Utah, a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, to ensure that Utah legislators prioritize environmental issues that impact us every day: air quality, public lands, renewable energy, you name it.
