Overview
The New Venture Fund’s Western Energy Project seeks to protect ecologically important public lands in the Rocky Mountain West that are threatened by fossil energy leasing and development. This renewal grant will support the project’s efforts to secure oil and gas leasing plans in four Western states, finalize a rule that captures at least 50 percent of fugitive methane emissions from existing and future sources, and ensure implementation of a West-wide plan to protect 36 million acres of critical sage grouse habitat from the impacts of energy development.
