  • EDF provides a guide for ports and their partners in the United States to set, plan, implement and achieve their decarbonization goals.

  • A first-ever annual report for California's new Multibenefit Land Repurposing Program. EDF is an official state support entity for the program. The report covers progress during the first year of the program, from 2022-2023.

  • EDF fact sheet shows Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed pollution standards for new cars, buses and freight trucks would save more than 40,000 lives and prevent more than 25 million asthma attacks.

  • Measuring resilience

    Type: Report

    Date: February 28, 2024

    Report from EDF and RPA, in collaboration with other stakeholders and partners, provides a set of indicators and metrics that can be used to measure a community’s resilience across a specific geography.

  • Getting the landing right

    Type: Fact Sheet

    Date: February 27, 2024

    As the Biden administration decides which sustainable aviation fuels are eligible for new taxpayer subsidies, it must support high-integrity SAFS that meet rigorous environmental standards grounded in science. Details matter and ensuring the GREET model meets the Congressional requirements in the Inflation Reduction Act is critical. We can’t afford to trade one environmental threat for another.

  • Using a combination of literature review, workshops and expert solicitation, study authors propose a generalized framework to improve ecosystem health in highly altered river basins by reducing ecosystem stressors, enhancing ecosystem processes and increasing ecosystem resilience. The use of this framework is illustrated in the Mississippi-Atchafalaya River Basin (MARB) of the central United States (U.S.).

  • Report from EDF has guidance and analysis to help states develop regulatory frameworks for NPA evaluation and implementation, and to help utilities successfully implement NPA programs.

  • Chemical Exposure Action Map

    Type: Link

    Date: February 22, 2024

    EDF's map offers tools to encourage EPA to do better risk assessments of chemicals. Use this tool to see where facilities are polluting toxic chemicals into our air, water and land and how it’s putting our health at risk, then encourage EPA to take action.

  • Study by EDF scientists shows that standard frameworks used to assess the climate impacts of hydrogen production are vulnerable to broad miscalculation.

  • Climate impacts of hydrogen systems (PDF)

    Type: Fact Sheet

    Date: February 16, 2024

    Although hydrogen is widely considered a climate “solution,” it creates several climate challenges depending on how it is produced, managed, and used. Fortunately, there are actions we can take to maximize the climate benefits of hydrogen by ensuring it is deployed strategically and effectively.
