And tonight, we will be going to Park Avenue South in Manhattan and to the offices of the Environmental Defense Fund. Their mission for over 50 years has been to preserve the natural systems on which all life depends. We’ll start with their CEO Fredd Krupp and then hear from some of the other members of the team.
Guided by science and economics, the Environmental Defense Fund, commonly referred to as EDF, tackles urgent threats with practical solutions, which includes being one of the first environmental groups to engage corporations in a constructive way. And in the world of today, where the median time a person spends with an organization is less than five years, EDF has been led by the same individual for 35 years. He is Fred Krupp, the President of the Environmental Defense Fund.
