Sierra's Energy Resources Policy

Guided by the conservation ethic, the Sierra Club crafted a comprehensive Energy Resources Policy in 2006 to promote a positive vision of a sustainable energy future. The Sierra Club’s clean energy strategy will wean us from oil, coal and other fossil fuels, eliminate energy waste, work in harmony with natural systems, and define the technologies and smart energy solutions that will meet our nation’s energy needs.
