We are working to support bold policy visions

to solve some of Utah’s most pressing environmental problems.

This is the first ever, comprehensive air quality legislation

to be introduced in the state of Utah.


To reduce air pollution and carbon emissions by 50% by 2030.


We have a responsibility to take care of each other, and we all deserve the freedom to breathe clean air.

HB 220
emissions reduction amendments

During the 2023 legislative session, the O₂ Utah Foundation helped pass HB 220 (Emissions Reduction Amendments) into law.

Phase 1 of Prosperity 2030, HB 220 sets a standard on halogen emissions from industrial sources, namely bromine pollution — a super pollutant that increases our inversion up to 25%.


HB 411

The Community Renewable Energy Program is an initiative for Rocky Mountain Power to supply 100% renewable energy by 2030 to residents in businesses in participating communities.

Eighteen communities throughout Utah opted in to participate in this innovative partnership with our state's largest, investor-owned utility supplier, Rocky Mountain Power.

Transitioning communities to renewable energy, and away from Rocky Mountain Power's dirty fleet, is the single most significant step we can take to reduce carbon emissions in Utah. 

The O₂ Utah Foundation works with city councils and citizens to ensure this program moves forward to transition our state to renewable sources. 

commit to vote

The O₂ Utah Foundation conducted a Commit to Vote (CTV) experiment in State House District 39. We implemented this novel concept to test if one-on-one conversations could boost voter turnout.
We identified a treatment group of 4,000 and a control group of 800, and made contact through door-knocking, calling, or texting with each treatment group member while the control group received no contact.

Anyone that signed a CTV card was 50% more likely to vote.
