How we work
To solve the most pressing environmental problems, EDF looks beyond the typical paths to conservation.
We leverage the power of the marketplace, helping to create new economic solutions like carbon markets and habitat exchanges.
We also work with a range of partners—from individual farmers to companies like FedEx, McDonald's and Walmart—to launch cost-saving solutions that protect nature and human health.
Founded by scientists, [EDF] believes in data...It promotes market incentives to change behavior and isn’t afraid to work with industry.
Utterly nonpartisan, it is oriented toward practical policy solutions.Joe Nocera New York Times columnist
