Corporate Partners Program

The urgency of climate change has led more and more corporations to partner with environmental groups to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and to connect with conservation-minded consumers and decision-makers. To that end, the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (NYLCVEF) established the Corporate Partners Program. 


Our Corporate Partners are corporations, businesses, partnerships and organizations that support NYLCVEF in our efforts to educate the general public, candidates and elected officials about environmental issues confronting New York State. Our education efforts cover a wide range of topics — from green buildings to energy policy to solid waste — while advancing an agenda that promotes both environmental conservation and economic development. We believe that advancing conservation and climate initiatives will help New York remain a place where businesses thrive. 


Membership includes our signature Eco-Breakfasts (10-12 annually) which provide occasions for our partners to hear from prominent policy and political leaders. These events offer opportunities to network, engage key decision-makers and bring attention to corporations and their initiatives.Corporate Partners are also invited to participate in NYLCVEF’s events and activities throughout the state, including educational forums on Long Island, in New York City, Westchester County, the Capital District and beyond. We also offer opportunities to highlight our Corporate Partners on our website, newsletters, and other event and promotional materials.

Membership levels include: Silver ($7,500), Gold ($10,000) and Platinum ($15,000)
