What sets CLF apart from other environmental organizations in your area?

CLF is extremely effective at thinking and acting strategically, especially in terms of climate change adaptation and mitigation, which is a primary concern of ours. They see the big picture as well as the smaller steps it takes to achieve long-range strategic goals. For instance, CLF helped close coal-burning power plants in New England while at the same time working in a collaborative way to establish the country’s first offshore wind farm off of Block Island. We are proud to be part of the CLF team. We are making a difference.

“In our view, CLF’s climate work is a model that others at both the federal and state level should follow.”
