What We're Doing

Building a 100 percent clean future

Stabilizing global warming starts with cutting carbon pollution in the United States to half of peak levels by 2030, leading global net greenhouse gas emissions to reach zero by midcentury, and sustaining net-negative emissions thereafter.

Creating good jobs in the United States

Building a 100 percent clean future will create millions of new jobs, and policy must ensure that these jobs are located here in the United States and provide workers fair wages, good benefits, and full collective bargaining rights.

Fighting for environmental justice

Partnering with environmental justice advocates to turn the tide against environmental injustice, economic inequality, and climate change will ensure everyone can realize their fundamental right to clean air, clean water, and healthy, thriving communities. 

 

Learning from leadership in the states

Creating a road map for federal action will lift up lessons learned from the states, local governments, and tribal nations that have made important strides for climate, justice, and jobs.
