The global climate crisis is the defining challenge facing wildlife and people alike. The National Wildlife Federation advances ambitious and equitable national policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, remove carbon dioxide emissions naturally and through new technologies and to speed the transition to zero-carbon energy production. By expanding use and access to clean energy, we can improve the environment and health of our communities to give people and wildlife a more stable climate.

Clean energy and climate strategies can be down to earth. Whether it’s planting urban trees, restoring a native prairie, or harnessing offshore wind power, nature has great ability to absorb carbon dioxide and reduce emissions to help heal our planet—if we give it some help. And it is imperative that we ensure climate solutions benefit everyone equitably, including historically disenfranchised, frontline and fossil fuel-dependent communities.

The National Wildlife Federation is dedicated to advancing solutions that help accelerate the transition to renewable energy in order to build a just, equitable, clean energy future for wildlife and people.
