How Environmental Defense Fund impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision

The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), guided by science and economics, finds practical and lasting solutions to the most serious environmental problems. EDF envisions a community that preserves and protects the natural systems on which all life depends. Using a multidisciplinary approach, EDF works with multiple organizations—including businesses, governments and communities—to work most effectively towards environmental sustainability. For example, in collaboration with CPS Energy, EDF is working to reduce natural gas leak volume. This helps prevent waste and keeps energy costs affordable while reducing emissions of climate pollutants.
