Mission: Earthworks is dedicated to protecting communities and the environment from the impacts of irresponsible mineral and energy development while seeking sustainable solutions.
Results: Policies developed by Earthworks have become state and federal laws, including ending corporate giveaways to the mining sector, passing precedent-setting laws granting rights to landowners facing oil and gas drilling, implementing sweeping statewide reforms protecting water, air, and public health, and full disclosure of toxics reporting data.
Geographic areas served: USA and international
Programs: The Energy Program includes the Oil & Gas Accountability Project (OGAP) as well as the No Dirty Energy Campaign, which is the broad public face of Earthworks' work focused on coal mining, tar sands extraction, and uranium mining. This program works to change federal, state and local government policy and support communities impacted by existing and proposed energy extraction. By combining all of our energy work into one program, Earthworks addresses the destructive impacts of all forms of energy extraction in this complex energy environment. The Mining Program includes Earthworks' U.S. mining reform efforts, international mining work, and No Dirty Gold Campaign. This program focuses on legislative and regulatory strategies, campaigns to protect specific places from mining impacts, as well as market strategies and efforts to involve consumers and jewelers in placing pressure on mining companies to improve their practices.
