Mission Statement

Our mission is to preserve the natural systems on which all life depends, focusing on the most critical environmental problems.

Guided by science and economics, we find practical and lasting solutions to the most serious environmental problems.

Issue Areas – Action Issues

  • Climate: We work around the world to lower carbon emissions, fight deforestation and encourage the development of clean energy technology.
  • Oceans: We promote the establishment of sustainable and healthy fisheries both in the U.S. and internationally.
  • Ecosystems: We create and support incentives that encourage land stewards like farmers and ranchers to conserve vulnerable species and habitats.
  • Health: We focus on fighting for reform of the nation’s outdated toxic chemicals law, and reducing air pollutants that impact human health.
