The Evergreen Mission

Evergreen is leading the fight to put bold climate action at the top of America's agenda. We’re building the ambitious, actionable policy roadmap for an all-out mobilization to defeat climate change—and to create millions of jobs in a thriving, just, and inclusive clean energy future.

Since Evergreen was founded in 2020, we have successfully influenced the national climate policy landscape. The Biden administration has adopted significant pieces of the Evergreen Action Plan and we played a pivotal role in the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). 

We pair bold policy products with campaign-style communications and shrewd advocacy tactics. We seek to galvanize an all-of-government mobilization to solve the climate crisis and build a just and thriving clean energy economy by raising standards, catalyzing investment, and centering justice.

We marry movement partnerships with direct engagement with decision makers to deliver the greatest positive impact, as fast as possible. In the months and years ahead, we are carrying our proven theory of change forward to ensure the effective implementation of the IRA (as well as additional executive and state action) to fully meet our climate, economic, and environmental justice goals.

Evergreen “successfully advocated for many pieces of the IRA and is now shifting focus to making sure that corporations, states, and the Biden Administration take full advantage of new policy provisions. We think Evergreen’s nimble makeup, connections to governors’ offices, and targeted focus on specific states could result in big impacts in the years ahead.”

Our History

We were founded by a group of former Inslee for America staffers and supporters who came together on a mission to build an all-out national mobilization to defeat the climate crisis and create millions of jobs in a clean energy economy. That mission now lives on with Evergreen.

“Evergreen includes some of the most prominent scientists and policymakers working for better climate policy and environmental justice, and they seek to leverage their experience and network to push for key energy and climate provisions in the Biden administration’s executive orders and Congress’s legislative agenda.”

When Gov. Inslee left the presidential race, he made his 218-page “gold standard” policy plan into an open-source document. It lives on today as the Evergreen Action Plan, a comprehensive roadmap for this national mobilization: investing in and building both a thriving clean-energy economy that strengthens communities and a future rooted in justice and economic inclusion.

Historic climate investments are now law. But our work to build a thriving and just clean energy future is far from over. We hope you’ll join us.
