The Story of PennFuture

Leading the transition to a clean energy economy in Pennsylvania and beyond.

PennFuture is leading the transition to a clean energy economy in Pennsylvania and beyond. We are protecting our air, water and land, and empowering citizens to build sustainable communities for future generations. 


Citizens for Pennsylvania’s Future was created in 1998 as a statewide environmental advocacy organization. Since our founding, we have achieved significant legal and policy victories that reduce pollution and protect the environment. We have provided millions of dollars in pro bono legal services while setting critical precedents and enforcing environmental laws across the commonwealth. 

Our team is working daily to protect public health, restore and protect natural resources, and move Pennsylvania toward a clean energy future. With offices in Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Mt. Pocono, our team litigates cases before regulatory bodies and in local, state, and federal courts; advances legislative action on a state and federal level; provides public education; and assists citizens in public advocacy. 

PennFuture has a long track record of precedent-setting victories and sound public policy, and we are committed to serving citizens and communities across Pennsylvania. Through education, outreach, and coalition building, we maximize our impact and elevate your voice. 

Join us as we improve Pennsylvania for future generations. 

Our Strategic Plan

In March 2019, PennFuture's board of directors approved a new strategic plan that will guide the organization through 2022. This document is the result of months of thoughtful planning, dialogue and introspection into PennFuture's values and goals for the next three years. The plan contains six strategic imperatives, as well as six strategic goals, that will serve as the roadmap for everything we do and try to accomplish within the next few years. 

From addressing the petrochemical buildout in Pennsylvania to continuing to advocate for clean water across the Commonwealth, this robust plan sets ambitious but attainable goals. The entire 24-page document can be found by clicking here.
