Class History

EDF created Climate Corps in 2008 as an innovative solution to help business overcome the barriers to sustainability. Since the program’s inception, we’ve recruited hundreds of highly-skilled, top graduate students and placed them within leading organizations to provide hands-on-help in achieving their corporate energy goals. In just one summer, our fellows gain unparalleled professional experience, while helping organizations realize deeper energy and cost savings.
