the 2024 Common Agenda

Environmental scorecard

In election years, Vermont Conservation Voters (VCV) endorses pro-environment candidates, and works to help elect our endorsed candidates. As a non-partisan organization, VCV has a long history of endorsing candidates from across the political spectrum who share our values.

Through its endorsements, VCV aims to educate voters across Vermont on candidates whose values and actions demonstratea commitment to our vision and values, by advancing and defending policies that protect the environment and promote health while advancing social, racial, and economic justice; and strengthening our democracy.

To inform our endorsement process, VCV closely tracks lawmakers’ actions at the State House, including key votes on environmental bills via our Environmental Scorecard and sponsorship of legislation that advances the Environmental Common Agenda of top legislative priorities, which VCV releases each legislative session in partnership with other advocacy organizations.

For new candidates, VCV requires candidates to respond to a questionnaire that provides context on a candidate’s environmental background and positions on a range of issues facing the state. For statewide candidates, Board and staff invite candidates for an in-depth interview.
