Our Impact

Since its launch in 2008, EDF Climate Corps, an innovative summer fellowship program, has embedded over 1,000 trained fellows within more than 500 leading organizations to help advance their energy goals.

Each year, EDF selects, trains, and supports more than 1,000 graduate students as they complete 10-week clean energy fellowships in large corporations and government agencies across the US and in China. Organizations like AT&T, PepsiCo, and the City of Boston have all benefited from the support of an EDF Climate Corps fellow. These “host” organizations gain valuable insights into successful energy management practices, allowing them to achieve deeper energy and cost savings.

Fellows gain the hands-on experience needed to jump-start their sustainability careers, and join the vibrant EDF Climate Corps network of energy management and sustainability practitioners. Together, alumni fellows, hosts and partners represent a community of over 1700 inspiring leaders, working to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy.
