Environmental
Defense Fund
What is the
Peter Getty:
Related article here at The
Huffington Post
The Environmental Defense Fund is one of the world’s
largest environmental organizations, with over one
million members and a staff of 500 scientists,
economists, policy experts, and other professionals all
around the world.
EDF's Core Mission...
is to preserve our
planet’s natural systems
on which all life
depends.
The EDF is guided by science and economics, and
aims to find practical and long-lasting solutions to
some of the most serious environmental
problems we experience today.
The Environmental Defense Fund is noted for
the combination of what they protect and the
ways in which they protect it.
According to EDF's website:
“We work to solve the most critical environmental
problems facing the planet. This has drawn us to areas
that span the biosphere: climate, oceans, ecosystems and
health. Since these topics are intertwined, our solutions
take a multidisciplinary approach. We work in concert
with other organizations — as well as with business,
government and communities — and avoid duplicating
work already being done effectively by others,”
(www.edf.org).
Results — Create environmental solutions that make a lasting
difference in the world
Respect — Welcome diverse perspectives, talents and
contributions
Innovation — Design and use a wide range of problem-solving
tools
Optimism — Embrace ambitious environmental goals while
taking into account real-world dynamics
Integrity — Uphold a commitment to science, rigorous analysis,
intellectual honesty and ethical action
EDF’s Core Values:
Impact: 65% of U.S. fisheries are currently managed
using sustainable methods, helping to reverse decades
of overfishing.
Restoring: Healthy Oceans
EDF's role: introduced catch shares, a type of
management that is now widely used. Catch shares
give fishermen a stake in the overall health of a
fishery.
Reducing: Climate pollution
According to the EDF, "methane pollution gets
much-needed scrutiny."
Impact: EPA announced plans to set limits on
methane pollution within the oil and gas
industry.
EDF's role: drew focus to the problem by initiating a
series of 16 studies to gather data. Partners include
about 100 universities, research institutions and
companies.
Protecting: Vulnerable Ecosystems
Safe Harbor preserves habitat on private lands.
Impact: 4 million acres of habitat protected
EDF's role: created and launched Safe Harbor, an
organization that gives landowners added incentives
to protect rare species while simultaneously avoiding
new government restrictions regarding land usage.
Thousands of consumer products are getting safer.
Impact: According to EDF.com, "Walmart has a new safer
chemical policy that asks suppliers to disclose chemicals in
thousands of household products. The policy also targets
priority chemicals of concern for phasing out or
substitution with safer ingredients."
Safeguarding: Human Health
EDF's role: provided scientific help to Walmart
about how to develop a leadership policy that
sets a standard for safer chemicals in the
marketplace—continuing their efforts on
utilizing corporate partnerships for positive
environmental results.

  • 1. Environmental Defense Fund What is the Peter Getty: Related article here at The Huffington Post
  • 2. The Environmental Defense Fund is one of the world’s largest environmental organizations, with over one million members and a staff of 500 scientists, economists, policy experts, and other professionals all around the world.
  • 3. EDF's Core Mission... is to preserve our planet’s natural systems on which all life depends.
  • 4. The EDF is guided by science and economics, and aims to find practical and long-lasting solutions to some of the most serious environmental problems we experience today.
  • 5. The Environmental Defense Fund is noted for the combination of what they protect and the ways in which they protect it.
  • 6. According to EDF's website: “We work to solve the most critical environmental problems facing the planet. This has drawn us to areas that span the biosphere: climate, oceans, ecosystems and health. Since these topics are intertwined, our solutions take a multidisciplinary approach. We work in concert with other organizations — as well as with business, government and communities — and avoid duplicating work already being done effectively by others,” (www.edf.org).
  • 7. Results — Create environmental solutions that make a lasting difference in the world Respect — Welcome diverse perspectives, talents and contributions Innovation — Design and use a wide range of problem-solving tools Optimism — Embrace ambitious environmental goals while taking into account real-world dynamics Integrity — Uphold a commitment to science, rigorous analysis, intellectual honesty and ethical action EDF’s Core Values:
  • 8. Impact: 65% of U.S. fisheries are currently managed using sustainable methods, helping to reverse decades of overfishing. Restoring: Healthy Oceans
  • 9. EDF's role: introduced catch shares, a type of management that is now widely used. Catch shares give fishermen a stake in the overall health of a fishery.
  • 10. Reducing: Climate pollution According to the EDF, "methane pollution gets much-needed scrutiny." Impact: EPA announced plans to set limits on methane pollution within the oil and gas industry.
  • 11. EDF's role: drew focus to the problem by initiating a series of 16 studies to gather data. Partners include about 100 universities, research institutions and companies.
  • 12. Protecting: Vulnerable Ecosystems Safe Harbor preserves habitat on private lands. Impact: 4 million acres of habitat protected
  • 13. EDF's role: created and launched Safe Harbor, an organization that gives landowners added incentives to protect rare species while simultaneously avoiding new government restrictions regarding land usage.
  • 14. Thousands of consumer products are getting safer. Impact: According to EDF.com, "Walmart has a new safer chemical policy that asks suppliers to disclose chemicals in thousands of household products. The policy also targets priority chemicals of concern for phasing out or substitution with safer ingredients." Safeguarding: Human Health
  • 15. EDF's role: provided scientific help to Walmart about how to develop a leadership policy that sets a standard for safer chemicals in the marketplace—continuing their efforts on utilizing corporate partnerships for positive environmental results.
