Advocating for Clean Energy and Climate Solutions

National Wildlife Federation recognizes that the challenge before us to reverse the threat of global warming is tremendous and will require major investments in solutions at the local, national and international level.

We work on multiple fronts to tackle this problem and reduce the impact of climate change on wildlife and our environment.

Speaking Up for Smart Policies

Our climate and energy team is promoting a range of policy solutions to transition America to a clean energy economy:

Helping People Reduce Their Carbon Footprint

NWF works to inspire people to understand their impact on the environment, and learn ways to conserve energy and reduce their carbon footprint. Here are a few examples:

  • In an effort to reduce the impact of America's school buildings and university campuses on the environment, NWF has two programs designed specifically to support and reward students, teachers and administrators for their efforts to improve the efficiency of school buildings and curriculum, as well as foster environmental stewardship among today's children:

  • NWF provides resources around how to reduce your carbon footprint through recycling, greener purchasing habits, and energy and water conservation.

  • We are currently working with McGraw-Hill and NewPage Corporation to conduct a pilot textbook recycling and research project to improve options for textbook recycling throughout K-12 schools, colleges and universities.
