Since 1966, Conservation Law Foundation has used the law, science, policymaking, and the business market to find pragmatic, innovative solutions to New England’s toughest environmental problems. Whether that means cleaning up Boston Harbor, protecting ocean fisheries to ensure continued supply, stopping unnecessary highway construction in scenic areas, or expanding access to public transportation, they are driven to make all of New England a better place to live, work, and play. What’s more, they have the toughness to hold polluters accountable, and the tenacity to see complex challenges through to their conclusion. CLF is also nimble enough to adjust course as conditions change to achieve the best outcomes. Their goal is not to preserve what used to be, but to create an even better New England — a region that’s truly thriving.
Thanks to CLF’s relentless advocacy – in courtrooms, in statehouses, and in boardrooms from New England to D.C. – today Boston Harbor is the pride of the city, Georges Bank is free from oil and gas rigs, Lake Champlain’s polluted waters are getting cleaner, and New England’s remaining obsolete coal plants are on the verge of shutting down for good.
But they don’t just shut down polluters. They create comprehensive long-term solutions to environmental challenges. CLF is a critical mover in building a new energy infrastructure, restoring the health of oceans, countering climate change, and safeguarding the health, quality of life, and economic prosperity of families and neighbors for generations to come.
