National Resources Defense Council

Description The Natural Resources Defense Council's purpose is to safeguard the Earth: its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. NRDC works to restore the integrity of the elements that sustain life—air, land, and water—and to defend endangered natural places.

NRDC seeks to establish sustainability and good stewardship of the Earth as central ethical imperatives of human society. NRDC affirms the integral place of human beings in the environment, and strives to protect nature in ways that advance the long-term welfare of present and future generations.

NRDC works to foster the fundamental right of all people to have a voice in decisions that affect their environment, seeking to break down the pattern of disproportionate environmental burdens borne by people of color and others who face social or economic inequities.
