Black and other communities of color have long suffered injustice in the U.S. As an environmental organization that centers the voices of immigrants and refugees, we at ECOSS recognize that racial, social and economic equity are prerequisites for environmental justice. We must act to undo the systemic racism that has plagued this land for over 400 years. ECOSS stands in solidarity with our Black communities against racial injustice.


ECOSS educates and empowers businesses and diverse communities to implement environmentally sustainable practices.

Everyone can make a difference – ECOSS bridges industry, government and communities to promote practical and sustainable environmental solutions. We are leaders in community engagement, working in tandem with a broad base of immigrants and refugees to mitigate stormwater pollution, disseminate education on transportation electrification, improve green space access, reduce food waste, and more.

In response to the ongoing COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic, ECOSS has compiled a list of links to resources to help our businesses and communities in these stressful times. Please take a look if you or someone you know needs support.
