Renewables on the Rise

Clean energy is sweeping across America and is poised for more dramatic growth in the coming years.

Protecting Forests

To protect species and biodiversity, we must protect the world’s forests. Doing so will help stabilize our climate. We’re doing our part by engaging the American public and urging U.S. companies to choose sustainability. For instance, we’re urging Cargill and other U.S. agricultural companies operating in the tropics to adopt zero-deforestation plans, and we’re urging U.S. tissue companies to include recycled paper products in their paper towels, toilet paper and tissues.

Protect Endangered Species

We share our planet with countless incredible creatures, from the grizzly on the ridgeline to the bee in the meadow, from the wolf in the forest to the butterfly in our backyard. Many are on the brink of extinction — but instead of helping, the Trump administration is weakening the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and expanding drilling and logging in vital habitats. It’s up to us to protect endangered species and the habitats they call home.

No Bees, No Food

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from almonds to strawberries to the alfalfa used to feed dairy cows. What happens if the bees disappear? It’s simple: No bees, no food.

More Nature

Every minute, America is losing two football fields worth of forest, meadow, grassland, desert, beachfront, riverside or wetland. Today, just 13 percent of oceans worldwide can be classified as "wilderness" relatively unaffected by human activity.

This continuous loss of nature diminishes not only the richness of our natural world, but also of our own lives and that of our children’s future.

Go Solar

Fortunately, more Americans are going solar every day. By 2017, our country had enough solar energy capacity installed to power the equivalent of more than 10 million homes.
