About Us

Beautiful Forest

The Partnership for Policy Integrity (PFPI) uses science, litigation, policy analysis and strategic communications to promote policies that protect climate, ecosystems, and people.

Our Story

Back in 2008, when three large biomass power plants were proposed in western Massachusetts, a small band of scientists and activists formed who were alarmed about the impacts these plants would have on air, water, and health in their communities, and the emerging threat to forests and the climate. Out of this effort, PFPI was born.

Founded in 2010 by Dr. Mary Stuart Booth, an ecologist formerly at the Environmental Working Group (EWG), and Richard Wiles, a co-founder of EWG, PFPI provides science and legal support so that citizen groups, environmental organizations, and policymakers can better understand energy development impacts on air quality, water quality, ecosystems, and climate.

Our ten year report shows PFPI’s evolution from local to national to international campaigns, and from work on biomass energy to forest policy, fracking and other issues. PFPI continues to grow, and to go where we’re needed to combat corporate misinformation and pollution with science, integrity and public policy. Read the report here.


How We Work

We demonstrate the real environmental impact of devastating industries and equip advocates with the tools to fight back and protect the communities they love. 

We expose corporate myths and demonstrate the facts behind the facade. 

We work in partnership with scientists and advocates around the world.

We change laws by bringing compelling evidence and strong coalitions into the halls of power and demanding change.

And when governments stand on the side of polluters instead of the people, we take governments to court to protect the public good.
