United States

Across this great country, NRDC stands for the rights of all people to clean air, clean water, and healthy communities by protecting the wildlife, landscapes, and natural resources that sustain us all.


NRDC works to protect both the wilderness and densely populated cities of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

Across the Southeast, NRDC is fighting for a clean energy and climate-resilient future that’s good for people, the planet, and the economy.

We clean up dirty energy and local rivers, protecting communities and the Great Lakes ecosystem, and promoting policies that boost renewable energy and energy efficiency.

NRDC is working with cities and states in the region to transition to clean energy, promote environmental justice, and protect public lands.

NRDC works with local leadership to advance some of the most progressive environmental, health, and climate policies in the country.

Many of our top priorities—from tackling climate change to defending endangered species—come to a head in this region.

We work with local partners to restore access to power and clean water after Hurricane Maria and ensure a more sustainable future.

NRDC fights for the extraordinary landscapes, majestic seas, and iconic wildlife of Alaska and the Arctic.


NRDC was born in New York, and over the past four decades, our work in this state has anchored our Northeast regional advocacy efforts.
