Environmental Defense Fund (EDF)
Environmental Defense Fund
Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) is a leading international non-profit organization. We forge powerful solutions to the world’s biggest environmental problems by combining passionate commitment with strong, innovative science and cutting-edge economics. Our results show that human prosperity and environmental progress can go hand in hand. We work to meet people’s needs for food, water, energy and ecosystems. We work in a nonpartisan fashion with allies—business, communities and government—to find the ways that work for people and nature. At EDF, we understand that market forces can drive either pollution or environmental protection. So we work to correct market failures—such as the failure to account for all of the costs pollution imposes on society. By getting the incentives right, we harness the power of markets to drive environmental solutions and reward people for conservation and stewardship. Our cost-effective solutions ensure that each dollar delivers more protection.
