Employing a simultaneously bold and deeply pragmatic approach, NRDC’s environmental priorities are: curbing global warming and creating the clean energy future, reviving the world’s oceans, defending endangered wildlife and wild places, protecting our health by preventing pollution, ensuring safe and sufficient water, and fostering sustainable communities.
