Grants to this Grantee
for elevating the consumer voice in clean transportation and energy  
Every day, American consumers spend about $1 billion just on gasoline, and another $500 million for electricity. Consumers of these products have a powerful collective voice that is represented, in part, by Consumer Reports (formerly known as Consumers Union). This grant will help Consumer Reports flex consumer power to reduce global warming pollution and provide consumers with safe and equitable energy and transportation choices.
for support of the Energy and Environment Program  
With support from the Hewlett Foundation, Consumers Union has added communications capacity to its Energy and Environment Program. The program amplifies the consumer presence in clean energy, transportation, and climate debates, where policies to reduce global warming emissions can have large benefits for consumers, including cleaner air, energy price stability, and lower energy costs.
