About the Alliance
Washington is leading the way to a more equitable, prosperous future for everyone.
The Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy is a coalition of Washington organizations and individuals committed to building our state’s economy, improving the health of our residents, and leading on the fight against climate change.
With more than 200 coalition members including health professionals, businesses, labor unions, faith communities, environmental advocates, and communities of color—plus thousands of volunteers from all over the state—the Alliance is dedicated to building a prosperous future with a clean energy economy.

Washington has never waited for others to find solutions. We have a history of tackling problems others wouldn’t and taking on challenges as opportunities. Now it’s time to write the next chapter.
Washington is creating a new economy built on clean efficient energy. The choices we make now can propel us toward healthier communities and stronger economies across the state.
We believe Washington:
1. Will respond to climate change by adopting standards and policies that reduce carbon emissions and hold big emitters accountable.
2. Can grow our economy, business sector, and labor movement by incentivizing homegrown clean energy and technology, which creates good jobs and better choices for consumers, and improves health.
3. Must invest in communities of color and communities with low incomes disproportionately harmed by fossil fuel pollution.
It starts with putting Washingtonians to work building clean energy infrastructure, improving water quality in our rivers and streams, as well as managing our forests more sustainably. And we’ll invest in communities that are most damaged by pollution and climate change.
