the nature conservancy
From our historic work in land acquisition to cutting-edge research that influences global policy, The Nature Conservancy is constantly adapting to take on our planet’s biggest, most important challenges. Our vision is a world where the diversity of life thrives, and people act to conserve nature for its own sake and its ability to fulfill our needs and enrich our lives.
Environmental Defense Fund
For decades, EDF has been committed to bipartisan environmentalism. The results are incontestable: Every major environmental law from the early 1970s to 2016 has passed with support of both Democrats and Republicans.
Today, we work with members of Congress from both parties to resist attacks against America's bedrock environmental laws.
Natural Resources defense council
NRDC works to safeguard the earth—its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends.
The Sierra Club
The Sierra Club is the most enduring and influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States. We amplify the power of our 3.5+ million members and supporters to defend everyone’s right to a healthy world.
Union of concerned scientists
Our scientists and engineers develop and implement innovative, practical solutions to some of our planet’s most pressing problems—from combating global warming and developing sustainable ways to feed, power, and transport ourselves, to fighting misinformation, advancing racial equity, and reducing the threat of nuclear war.

This difference between “where we are likely to be and where we need to be” is known as the ‘emissions gap’.
