Oil Change International
Oil Change International is a research, communication, and advocacy organization focused on exposing the true costs of fossil fuels and facilitating the coming transition towards clean energy. They focus on the fossil fuel industry because they view the production and consumption of oil, gas and coal as sources of global warming, human rights abuses, war, national security concerns, corporate globalization, and increased inequality. They also see fossil fuel industry’s interests behind every major barrier to a clean energy transition.
Oil Change International contributes to the greater movement in a number of important ways:
Oil Change brings unique industry expertise that allows us to research and release timely, hard-hitting, campaign-relevant investigations countering corporate arguments for oil, gas and coal development;
Oil Change engages in domestic and international policy forums to push a shift of public finances away from fossil fuels and towards clean energy;
Oil Change provides experience and leadership in organizing resistance to the political influence of the fossil fuel industry, particularly in the United States.
The organization is a small, nimble organization with many decades of staff experience in campaigns as well as expertise in the economic, financial, social, and environmental issues surrounding the fossil fuel industry. Using this knowledge and experience, they produce cutting edge research and analysis and craft strategic, incisive campaigns, supporting a diversity of strategies and tactics to challenge the influence of the fossil fuel industry.
To achieve the goals, they network with people and organizations around the world that are committed to promoting progress in the energy industry towards an environmentally and socially sustainable energy future. They have an online supporter list of over 100,000, an international network of grasstops elite influence leaders, and media-savvy messaging.
