Creating Good Jobs, a Clean Environment, and a Fair and Thriving Economy
- design public policies, perform research, and run public education and advocacy campaigns to advocate for practical solutions;
- facilitate dialogue between environmentalists, union members and other stakeholders;
- and educate America’s labor union members and environmentalists about the economic and environmental impacts of climate change and the job-creating opportunities of environmental protections.
Our work is centered around three key objectives:
Innovating, building and installing the clean economy—clean energy, energy efficiency, safe chemicals, and clean vehicles—is protecting the environment, creating quality jobs across the country, and ensuring the health of workers and the environment. Find out more about our work.
Repairing America’s infrastructure is a significant opportunity to create quality jobs. But it’s also an opportunity to rebuild these systems to protect the health of workers and communities, to reduce carbon and methane emissions, and to build a stronger, more resilient system for the future.

We can only achieve a thriving and fair clean economy if our international trade and climate agreements raise standards for workers, consumers, and the environment. Find out more about our work.
