Player-supported charity ClientEarth provides dedicated legal capacity for our environment
ClientEarth is an environmental charity with a unique approach. It uses the law to create powerful change and a future where people and planet thrive together.
Founded in 2007, it was Europe's first charity providing dedicated legal capacity for the environment. Working in partnerships across borders, systems and sectors, it has used the law to protect life on earth. Active in over 50 countries worldwide, ClientEarth has more than 60 lawyers, scientists and policy advisers using the law to build a better future.
The charity works with the law at every stage, from evidence gathering to drafting new laws, implementing existing laws and checking governments and businesses are complying with them. In 2017, it was named the 'UK's most effective environmental organisation' by the Environmental Funders Network.
It is clear that the coming decade will decide the future of our planet - of our climate, oceans, forests, and ultimately all of earth's inhabitants. There has never been a more important time to fight for change and drive ambitious action to tackle the pressing environmental challenges we face. ClientEarth:
- believes the law is the most powerful tool we have in the fight to protect life on earth. It has proved its impact to tackle global challenges and is changing the face of global environmental action. It is informing, implementing and enforcing the law, advising decision-makers on policy and training legal and judicial professionals.
- works with partners to increase its reach, empowering people and charities to bring environmental cases of their own.
- pairs its revolutionary legal projects with strategic communications and campaigns to maximise its potential.
Now a directly-supported charity, ClientEarth previously received an amazing £750,000 from Postcode Green Trust.
