Environmental Progress (EP) was founded to achieve two goals: lift all humans out of poverty, and save the natural environment. These goals can be achieved by mid-century — but only if we remove the obstacles to cheap, reliable and clean energy.
We are motivated by our care for people and nature. We seek fair treatment of people everywhere. We approach our work with a spirit of open inquiry.
Environmental Progress’s biggest victories were saving America’s largest source of clean energy — nuclear power — in Illinois, New York, Connecticut, France, South Korea, and New Jersey. We did so by building a humanistic environmental movement demanding energy justice for all.
Our strategy depends on our financial independence. That means no contributions from energy companies or energy interests.
