We believe that the central question of our time is how human beings are going to thrive in the world without destroying the earth's ability to sustain us. In the face of enormous environmental challenges, virtually all sectors of our society are now scrambling to create solutions, and the Ecology Center plays a critical role in advancing the best models.

We focus our efforts in a few specific areas, where we've developed deep expertise, analyzed opportunities, and identified strategies for maximum impact. We descrive these overarching areas as Environmental Health, Sustainable Food, Energy & Climate Change, and Zero Waste. To put it very briefly, we work to make your products safer, your food more local, the energy you use cleaner, and to make less waste in the process.
