Vermont's communities, environment, and economy are threatened by the changing climate. We address this challenge within three areas of focus:

  • Energy: Improving buildings and transportation systems in order to use less and cleaner energy.
  • Land Use: Encouraging working farms and forests, compact settlements, and resilient watershed land use.
  • Sustainable Agriculture: Promoting healthy soil and expanding agricultural markets.

We do our work through charitable grantmaking, research, convening, direct engagement of our staff, and investing for mission impact.
