Environmental Working Group

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: December 18, 2014, 1:50 AM

Description

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is a not-for-profit environmental research organization that uses the power of information to improve public health and protect the environment by reducing pollution in air, water and food.

Based in Washington, D.C., and with an office in Oakland, California, EWG conducts groundbreaking, computer-assisted research on a variety of environmental issues. Recent EWG research topics have included pesticides in foods, air, and water; the cutback in energy conservation programs by California utilities; and toxic substances in beauty products.

The goal of EWG's research is to turn raw data into usable information. Our researchers unearth large databases from state and federal government agencies and other sources. Then, using their considerable computer hardware, software, and database management expertise, EWG analysts sift through the databases to discover the relevant information and newsworthy stories that are buried within the mountains of data.

EWG supplements its database research and analysis with carefully targeted monitoring of chemical contaminants in food, air and water.

EWG reports and publications have been the subject of literally thousands of news accounts, and have been covered by virtually every major media outlet in the country, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, and major network news shows.
