Our Mission

The mission of Conservation Voters of South Carolina is to make conservation and environmental issues a top priority among South Carolina’s elected leaders, political candidates, and voters. CVSC fights for our air, land, water and energy through political action. We are bipartisan, pragmatic and effective.

Governed by a Board of Directors that includes Republicans, Democrats and Independents, Conservation Voters is unique from other conservation organizations by our ability to make endorsements, contribute to candidate campaigns and communicate directly with voters about the need to elect the best conservation candidate in their district. Electoral activity is conducted through Conservation Voters Political Action Committee (PAC), which is supported by the members of Conservation Voters.

In addition to working to elect green candidates, Conservation Voters works throughout the Legislative Session to educate elected leaders and the public, and to promote legislation that protects our natural heritage and our special way of life. Conservation Voters is able to hold elected leaders directly accountable by tracking their votes and publishing them in our biennial Scorecard.

Our work is possible through the support of voters like you committed to the fight for a clean, safe and healthy South Carolina. We protect the South Carolina you love.
