The National Religious Partnership for the Environment was founded in 1993 by four major religious organizations and alliances that together serve tens of millions of Americans.
- The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, comprising the Catholic bishops of the United States and the Virgin Islands, which participates in the Partnership through its Environmental Justice Program and through its affiliated organization, Catholic Climate Covenant.
- The National Council of Churches of Christ, a council of 37 Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, Peace Churches, and African American denominations, which participates in the Partnership through its affiliated organization, Creation Justice Ministries.
- The Jewish Council for Public Affairs, a coordinating organization of 15 national Jewish organizations and 125 local Jewish federations and community relations councils, which participates in the Partnership through its affiliated organization, the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life.
- The Evangelical Environmental Network, a coalition of 23 evangelical Christian programs and educational institutions.
