About Us


Mighty Earth is a global environmental campaign organization that works to protect forests, conserve oceans, and address climate change. We work to drive large-scale action towards environmentally responsible agriculture that protects native ecosystems, wildlife, and water, and respects local community rights. We focus on the big issues: conserving threatened landscapes like tropical rainforests, protecting oceans, and solving climate change.

Our campaigns and our team have played a leading role in persuading the world’s largest food and agriculture companies to adopt policies to eliminate deforestation and human rights abuse from their supply chains, and driven adoption of multi-billion dollar shifts to clean energy. Our Chairman, former Congressman Henry Waxman, is responsible for some of the most important environmental legislation of the last 50 years, notably the 1990 re-authorization of the Clean Air Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Since April 2017, Mighty Earth has been a proud member of the High Carbon Stock Approach Steering Group. We are committed to the HCS approach and will work to support the application of the HCS methodology around the world. View our ethical guidelines here.

Mighty Earth is also a member of many alliances, groups, and coalitions, including the Ape Alliance, Child Labor Coalition, Global Platform for Sustainable Natural Rubber, High Carbon Stock Approach, No Coal Japan, Planetary Emergency Group, ResponsibleSteel, and Voice Network.

Whether we’re rallying for change internationally or locally, Mighty Earth is building a movement to protect our environment. Join us today!
