The Corvallis Carbon Offset Fund (CCOF) was conceived by the Corvallis Interfaith Climate Justice Committee (ICJC) as a result of discussions with 350 Corvallis and a shared passion to take action on the growing climate crisis. It was realized that while existing carbon offsets unburden the climate of greenhouse gases, there were several disadvantages regarding
ICJC constructed an offset fund consisting of local organizations to address these concerns. It followed the framework of the Imagine Corvallis 2040 Vision Statement while moving forward on the goals of the Corvallis Climate Action Plan.
ICJC serves as the initial Steering Committee for the CCOF. Although its membership draws from 10 local faith-based communities, it designed the CCOF for the whole community.
Brian C. Lee is the principal visionary and architect of the CCOF, and leads the ICJC.
The Board oversees the implementation of the Corvallis Climate Action Plan. The Network provides a framework and integrates public-government relationships to establish and reach for the goals of the future.
Corvallis Climate Action Alliance is consortium of Corvallis community groups and individuals dedicated to raise awareness and promote action against climate warming, and demand a just transition away from fossil fuels.
Assessing your carbon footprint and contributing to the CCOF are among the many actions that are encouraged by the CCAA Healthy Planet = Healthy People campaign.
