Green Economy

Pennsylvania’s Rust Belt communities are too often defined by their industrial past. It’s time to embrace the economic promise of a sustainable future.

PennFuture and our partners are actively engaged in multiple campaigns to support Pennsylvania’s local communities, championing policies that end unproductive reliance on the declining fossil fuel industry and instead develop blueprints for long-term, nature-based economic growth.

Green Stimulus

The policy agenda laid out in our Green Stimulus and Recovery Platform for Pennsylvania envisioned how to safely and equitably restart the economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic in a way that protects human health, avoids state budget cuts and supports the growth of our nature-based and clean-energy businesses.
