Business and the environment are crucial to each other's success. EDF+Business. Where nature AND business thrive.

Sometimes unlikely partnerships drive incredible results. At Environmental Defense Fund, we believe companies, communities and the environment can thrive in unison – and we’re making it happen by leveraging the power of the marketplace. For 25 years, we’ve combined cutting-edge science, economic expertise and unexpected partnerships to help high-impact companies – including Walmart, KKR and FedEx – transform business as usual in their products, operations, supply chains and advocacy.

Our world needs healthy environments and healthy businesses to truly thrive. This is not an either/or choice. EDF+Business is forging solutions that drive ROI for both.

How we drive results
