Is PERC in Your Region?

As the home of free market environmentalism and the Enviropreneur Institute, PERC is the place where:

  • scholars refine the principles of free market environmentalism;
  • policy, business, and opinion leaders turn for environmental solutions; and
  • environmental entrepreneurs pair conservation and economic profit.

We are pleased to partner with the State Policy Network to learn more about regional environmental issues and to help free-market advocates foster harmony between economic growth and environmental quality. To partner with us on research or tell us about an enviropreneur in your home state, email:
