Environmental Defense Fund is a leading national nonprofit organization representing more than 700,000 members. Since 1967, we have linked science, economics and law to create innovative, equitable and cost-effective solutions to society''s most urgent environmental problems.

Environmental Defense Fund is dedicated to protecting the environmental rights of all people, including future generations. Among these rights are access to clean air and water, healthy and nourishing food, and flourishing ecosystems.

As an American organization, Environmental Defense Fund will always pay special attention to American environmental problems and to America''s role in both causing and solving global environmental problems.
