Clean Energy & Climate Action
VNRC takes a multi-pronged approach to help Vermonters combat the increasingly urgent climate crisis. From digging in at the local level with committed Vermonters to helping to advance strong state policy and in between, we combine exhaustive research, communications, public engagement, and policy advocacy to ensure Vermont embraces bold, equitable, job-creating clean energy solutions. We fundamentally believe that to change everything, we will need everyone. That means you!
