At EDF we believe that if we use the power inherent in large corporations to take a leadership position in aligning business success with environmental gains, then we can scale best practices across industries and address our most challenging climate issues. 

Business and a thriving planet do not have to be at odds.


Environmental Defense Fund’s mission is to preserve the natural systems on which all life depends.

By working with business, we support the EDF mission by finding pragmatic, market-based solutions to environmental issues. Our work drives EDF’s aggressive goals for oceans, climate, health and ecosystems by leveraging  powerful business to model the way for sustainability and smart policy.


We envision a world where business thrives by valuing, protecting and improving the environment.


Our partnerships drive sustainability leadership at top corporations, creating ripple effects across entire industries.
