    Climate Solutions

    CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — The Environmental Law & Policy Center, one of the nation’s leading public interest environmental advocates, intervenes in legal and regulatory proceedings to protect natural resources and encourage clean energy development. As the United States looks to remain a leader on addressing climate change, it will be essential that a significant number of Midwest states, that collectively represent five percent of global carbon emissions due to their heavy industry and a reliance on coal-fired power plants, pivot decisively towards limiting their carbon emissions by reforming their energy sector. The Foundation’s support helps ensure that the Environmental Law & Policy Center remains a formidable advocate for clean energy across the Midwest and a partner to national environmental organizations. Successfully scaling up clean energy across the Midwest represents an indispensible element of U.S. leadership on addressing climate change.
