We helped expand Yosemite.

In 2013, Environment California worked to protect a 1,600-acre wildlife corridor that connects Yosemite National Park to the Sierra National Forest. More than 10,000 Californians signed petitions, and the State Legislature unanimously passed a resolution urging Congress to expand Yosemite. In March, Environment California went to Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office in D.C. to the deliver the petitions, and she sponsored a Yosemite expansion bill one month later.

We brought more clean cars to California.

California’s pioneering clean cars standards, which we helped win in 2006, paved the way for President Obama to propose a major improvement in nationwide fuel efficiency standards: a fleetwide average of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. Meanwhile, we helped deliver more than 12,000 petitions calling on the California Air Resources Board to increase the number of emission-free vehicles on the road.

We're cutting global warming pollution.

Together, we’ve made hard-won progress in the race to protect our children from the worst consequences of global warming. This past June, after more than 3 million Americans urged President Obama to act on climate, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed a rule to limit carbon pollution from power plants — the single largest sources of global warming pollution. We’ll keep tackling global warming with you at our side.

Six years after Environment California released its ground-breaking “Toxic Baby Bottles” report, California finally outlawed baby bottles and sippy cups containing bisphenol-A (BPA) in 2011. Our research, organizing and advocacy put the pieces in place for this important victory to keep California's kids safe from toxic chemicals and hormone disrupters.

We launched a campaign to see 1 million electric vehicles in California.

Transportation is the single largest source of global warming pollution in California, creating pollutants that harm our environment and our health. In 2013, Environment California launched a campaign to put our state in the driver’s seat to lead the transition from gasoline-powered vehicles to clean electric vehicles. The Charge Ahead California campaign has a strong coalition of allies to put a million electric cars, trucks and buses on our roads.
