  • The Council has one simple mission: To encourage and facilitate environmentally responsible economic growth. This is accomplished by establishing a cooperative effort between the public and private sectors among the eight Great Lakes states and with the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec. Through the Council, Governors work collectively to ensure that the entire Great Lakes region is both economically sound and environmentally conscious in addressing today's problems and tomorrow's challenges.

    The Council works directly for the eight Great Lakes Governors on projects and issues of common concern to them. The Council develops, implements, and coordinates project-specific initiatives to improve the region’s environment and economy. The Council is unique among regional and national Governors' organizations because the member Governors insist that the initiatives and projects pursued have a direct impact on the health and welfare of the region’s citizens.
