Welcome to Consumer Reports Advocacy

Consumer Reports is an independent nonprofit organization that works for a fair, safe and transparent marketplace.

Since we were founded as Consumers Union in 1936, we have advocated for the rights of all consumers. Now, we are united under the Consumer Reports name, bringing together our trusted testing, research, journalism, and advocacy.

We hope you will partner with us and our six million members for a better world.

Energy for Consumers and Our World

We all should have access to reliable and affordable energy that does not compromise their right to clean air. We should also have control over our utility bills, including the ability to cut costs by conserving energy or making our homes more efficient. That’s why CR fights fixed utility fees and advocates for federal and state action to increase energy efficiency and investments in affordable clean energy. We also fight for fuel-efficient, cleaner cars and more mobility choices.
