Environmental Defense Fund
Sustainable Building Energy Efficiency
With world attention focused on both the environment and the economy, Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) is where policymakers and business leaders turn for win-win solutions. This leading green group, with programs from Boston to Beijing, has tripled in size over the past decade by focusing on strong science, uncommon partnerships and market-based approaches. You can be part of a vibrant workplace that welcomes diverse perspectives, talents and contributions, where innovation and a focus on results are a way of life.
EDF Climate Corps is Environmental Defense Fund’s innovative summer fellowship program that places specially trained MBA and MPA students in companies, cities and universities to build the business case for energy efficiency. If improving building energy efficiency were as simple as flipping a switch, organizations could easily cash in on big cost savings and emission reductions. Unfortunately, limited resources, information gaps and organizational barriers prevent many organizations from taking advantage of smart energy investments. EDF Climate Corps overcomes these barriers with ambitious young talent trained to develop customized energy efficiency investment plans for their host organizations. Since the program’s launch in 2008, EDF Climate Corps fellows have uncovered over a billion dollars in energy savings for participating organizations.
EDF pioneered the NGO-corporate partnership model, and over the past twenty years has worked with leading companies such as Walmart, McDonald's, FedEx, and KKR to protect human health and the environment by reducing the lifecycle environmental impacts of products and services, and by incorporating environmental considerations into business culture and decision-making. Our projects are designed to achieve significant environmental results, generate business benefits for our corporate partners, and create new industry-wide best practices.
