The environmental challenges may be huge, but so is our impact
2015 was a breakthrough year for our environment. And that’s exactly why we come together to form this powerful and connected community of more than 1,500,000 members: We solve problems way too big for any of us to solve alone. That’s how movements change the world—and why your contribution matters.
With the help of more than 1 million members, we take a pragmatic approach that benefits people and nature.

Humans are hard-wired to respond to threats we can sense. We’re not so good at responding to threats we can’t see, hear or touch: Pollution of air and water, toxic chemicals in products we buy, climate pollution.
Data has a long history of leading to environmental solutions. But sophisticated, inexpensive sensors are making the invisible visible, and have the potential to help solve some of our toughest environmental challenges.
Within the next five years, what would it take to drive down climate pollution in a meaningful way?
We crunched the numbers, and found we’ve already got the tools we need to turn the corner on climate change. Now we must galvanize the right partners, policy makers and world leaders to put the following solutions into action.
EDF recently released Blueprint 2020: our five-year strategic plan to make progress in four main areas: Climate & Energy, Ecosystems, Oceans, and Health.
In each environmental area, we’ve set a series of strategic goals—some that will take years to complete, and others that we’re fighting to win right now—this year.
