Our research has been instrumental in the climate policy space from the local to national level– including defining the planks of the Green New Deal for Public Schools, producing housing research that directly inspired the Whole Homes Repair program passed in Pennsylvania, and changing narratives on supply chain justice and critical minerals with first-of-its-kind modeling.
