Our History

In 2012 the New England Governors Conference was absorbed under the Coalition of Northeastern Governors. Both organizations worked on similar matters including transportation, energy, environment, and trade promoting regional collaboration through various action plans and agreements. 

In the past, NEG/ECP has adopted action plans to reduce the affects of climate change, acid rain, mercury deposition, and green house gas emissions in the transportation sector as well as adopt the Mystic Covenant to strengthen and promote trade. 

CONEG has continued to promote the economic and environmental well being of the Northeast through quarterly meetings of environmental commissioners, annual meetings of member governors, and develop models for legislative action including The Toxics in Packaging Clearinghouse (TPCH).
