Nature and Prosperity for All
Environmental Progress (EP) was founded to achieve two big 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.
Caring, Fairness & Openness
We are motivated by our care for people and nature. We seek fair treatment of people everywhere. And 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 and New York. As importantly, 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. We are grateful to our donors, who are listed below.
