Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is the nation's most effective environmental action group, combining the power of more than 2 million members and online activists with the expertise of nearly 500 scientists, lawyers, policy advocates, and other professionals across the globe ensure the rights of all people to the air, the water, and the wild. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, and many of the implementing regulations; our water enforcement cases played a major role shaping current water policy throughout the country. Today, our staff – a force for nature - work out of offices in New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bozeman, Montana and Beijing.
NRDC’s Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2) program is the business voice for the environment.

E2’s 1,000 members have founded or funded more than 2,500 companies; created more than 500,000 jobs and control more than $100 billion in private equity and venture capital. E2’s members are organized in nine chapters – including in the San Francisco Bay area; Los Angeles, San Diego, Portland, OR and Seattle WA, which are the responsibility of the E2 Pacific States Advocate.
