Life at EDF
At EDF, we are passionate about the work we do, whether it’s partnering with companies to reduce waste and pollution or devising new ways to protect endangered species. We are also passionate about making EDF a great place to work.
Meet the staff
Meet a few of the impressive people we have on staff.
Our interns and fellows have achieved impressive results, and gone on to do other great things—sometimes as members of our staff.
Each year, EDF employees from across the country gather in a beautiful natural setting to strengthen connections and exchange ideas. EDF’s leaders consider the retreat essential to creating a renewed sense of purpose and gaining new insights about our work.
It’s also a chance for employees to have fun together. In addition to planned outings such as bird watching and hiking, the retreat includes a dance party and the “Follies” talent show, which features acting, music, and singing skills—and a lot of laughs.
Every year EDF employees get to nominate colleagues for Outstanding Achievement Awards. A staff committee chooses five winners, who are honored at an award ceremony at the annual retreat.
The awards, which arose out of a staff member’s suggestion more than 10 years ago, often honor “unsung heroes” who have made extraordinary contributions.
More than just an address
EDF’s facilities reflect our determination to live our mission. Our remodeled Washington, D.C., office won a LEED Silver rating for commercial interiors and is now certified LEED Gold, and our San Francisco office is also certified LEED Gold.
We hope our offices serve as a model for others seeking to create healthy, beautiful and efficient working environments.
