About NRDC

For decades, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has worked to establish sustainability and good stewardship of the Earth as central moral tenets of human society. We urge governments, corporations, and the general public to act sustainably. And we act ourselves. Indeed, we insist that we lead toward the change we seek, and we pride ourselves on aligning our advocacy work with our internal operations. For years, NRDC has sought to understand and limit the impacts of its own operations. Now, we present our first sustainability report - the first comprehensive (A level) Global Reporting Initiative report by a U.S. environmental non-profit organization. Through analyzing the impact of our actions, we demonstrate how individual efforts add up. By doing it first ourselves, we hold to a shared commitment to ethical stewardship of the planet and its resources.
