What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Clean Energy and Climate Change Program

The Clean Energy and Climate Change Program focuses on improving air quality, combating global climate change, promoting and siting renewable energy sources, and advocating for energy efficiency. The Clean Energy and Climate Change Program is pushing for policies that boost low-cost locally-made clean energy, stopping unnecessary new natural gas pipelines, making sure new gas power plants don’t sink our region’s climate goals, and fighting to shut down New England’s remaining dirty coal plants that harm our health and pollute our climate.

Population(s) Served

The Healthy Communities and Environmental Justice Program focuses on transit-oriented development, environmentally sound land use practices, transportation reform, and farm and food policy advocacy and services, with an emphasis on the needs of underserved populations. The Healthy Communities and Environmental Justice Program is working to end the unfair environmental burdens imposed on low-income and communities of color; cutting pollution from our vehicles and creating alternatives to driving; pushing for better and more affordable public transit options across New England; and helping build a regional food system that supports access to fresh healthy food, creates jobs, cuts emissions, protects farmland, and grows our local economy.

Population(s) Served

The Ocean Conservation Program focuses on sustainable fisheries management and marine environmental protection. CLF’s advocates are pushing for permanent protection of our ocean’s most at-risk places, working with stakeholders throughout New England to achieve the right balance between ocean protection and development, and fighting to restore New England’s legendary fish populations before they vanish for good. This program works to protect endangered wildlife and underwater habitat in New England’s ocean waters, and to build a more sustainable future for our fisheries and coastal communities.

Population(s) Served

The Clean Air and Water Program focuses on air and waterway protection. Our advocates are fighting for new protections and creative solutions to keep stormwater pollution from wreaking havoc on our communities, working at both the state and individual waterbody level to control nitrogen pollution that causes dead zones and toxic algal blooms. We are holding polluting businesses accountable to the Clean Water and Clean Air acts, one polluter at a time.
