Our Mission

Green For All is dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans through a clean energy economy. We work in collaboration with the business, government, labor, and grassroots communities to create and implement programs that increase quality jobs and opportunities in green industry – all while holding the most vulnerable people at the center of our agenda.

Why We Need a Clean-Energy Economy

A clean-energy economy will move America past some of its most pressing challenges.

By making us energy independent, it will improve our national and economic security. By radically reducing the pollution that causes global warming, it will improve the health of our families and neighborhoods. And by creating millions of quality jobs and careers, it will pull America out of the current recession, strengthen our middle class, and better protect us from future economic turmoil.

More than that, building a clean-energy economy is a chance to reinvigorate and reinvest in the best part of the American dream: the idea that everyone gets a chance to succeed. By ensuring that every community has equal access to the new opportunities of the green economy, we can lift millions of people out of poverty.

Green For All’s Work

Pulling together workforce development agencies. Training young community leaders to be world-class spokespersons for the clean-energy economy. Developing business tools for small green enterprises. Advocating on Capitol Hill for green job training for vulnerable communities.

Green For All operates effectively at a number of different levels to build a clean-energy economy that closes the gaps in income, opportunity, security and health across the country. Its work covers a broad spectrum and takes many forms. As varied as it is, this work all flows from three primary tasks: to innovate policy, develop capacity, and build a movement.

INNOVATE POLICY

Green For All develops and advocates for innovative policies that 1) promote a clean-energy economy to solve the urgent problems of both our economy and our environment, and 2) enable governments at the federal, state and local levels to expand access and opportunity in the clean-energy economy.

DEVELOP CAPACITY

Green For All helps develop and strengthen the capacity of -- and partnerships among -- business, government, labor, non-profits and grassroots communities. These groups, sectors and partnerships leverage public and private investment to sustain a clean-energy economy and create millions of quality green jobs.

BUILD A MOVEMENT

Green For All engages and equips diverse and unlikely national and regional networks of leaders, organizations, coalitions and communities to build awareness and increase demand for policies and infrastructure that create clean-energy jobs and investment in green industries. The organization works to strengthen this popular movement’s ability to organize and effect change at the local, state and national levels.
