Working towards their mission of transforming the power of ideas and imagination into change that makes our world greener and healthier, PennEnvironment has been on the front lines of the fight for a greener Pennsylvania since 2002. In that time, they have led fights against polluters in court by filing dozens of lawsuits to compel polluters to lower their emissions — resulting in over $250 million in court-ordered penalties. They have also worked on the local level to help protect Pennsylvania’s natural areas and public lands through campaigns to educate the public about the risks they face. At the heart of much of what PennEnvironment does is education, founded in their belief that everyday people can make the greatest impact!
