What We Do

Strategic Initiatives

As opportunities to advance sustainable solutions emerge, CSE reacts strategically by designing a set of core initiatives that provide a focus for our work and reflect the unique skill sets we have to offer. For each initiative, we develop long range plans with active members, partners, and supporters and then implement those plans through a portfolio of work that may include original research, well timed media, engaging grassroots leaders, litigation, providing expert testimony and helping decision makers design responsive public policies.

Our current set of strategic initiatives includes:

  • Wild and Working Forests – We work to protect all remaining tracts of native and old growth forest while aligning federal, state, and private forest management with standards set by science and best practice. READ MORE…
  • Climate Justice – CSE is taking action around the urgent moral imperative of rapidly reducing our collective carbon footprint while transforming industrial agriculture and forestry practices into climate smart alternatives. READ MORE…
  • New Measures of Progress – We are one of the global leaders in development and application of the Genuine Progress Indicator and Ecological Footprint. READ MORE…
  • Green Infrastructure – CSE advances nature’s solutions to the infrastructure needs of the 21st century by making the case for protecting and restore native ecosystems for the wide range of economically valuable services they provide. READ MORE…
