For more than 20 years, we have empowered individuals and organizations to take simple actions to reduce pollution and protect public health. Our organization originally started as a joint task force to meet the federal standards under the Clean Air Act. In 1997, a public-private partnership was formed through its founding partners, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Government and the Baltimore Metropolitan Council, officially establishing Clean Air Partners as the local air quality experts in the metropolitan Baltimore-Washington region. Clean Air Partners is administered by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments.
Consisting of staff, a 31-person Board, and member organizations, Clean Air Partners’ team is led by air quality, environmental, and transportation experts on behalf of local businesses and corporations, advocacy and community groups, and government organizations from across the greater metropolitan Baltimore-Washington region.
