Since then we have built a membership of over 800 fossil fuel industry workers passionate about our vision. 

Our top-level goal is to help ensure a prosperous transition towards global carbon neutrality by 2050. Our mission in pursuit of this goal is to empower fossil fuel industry and Indigenous workers to build a sustainable energy economy. Our vision is that fossil fuel industry and Indigenous workers will play a leading role in building the energy infrastructure required to reach global climate targets.
