Protecting Our People

Protecting People and Planet

We believe that environmental security is not just about quality of life, it is a basic human right

We believe that environmental security is not just about quality of life, it is a basic human right

Every day vulnerable people are stripped of their rights, freedom and identity. They are victims of the environmental destruction being inflicted on our shared planet.

Driven by our core values of integrity, innovation and impact, EJF uses investigations and film to uncover these environmental and human rights abuses. We work for environmental justice, to protect the natural environment and the people and wildlife that depend upon it. Environmental security is a basic human right, and we go to the ends of the earth to defend people and planet.

Driving global action to avoid climate breakdown

EJF’s climate campaign aims to secure international action to decarbonise economies around the world, protect the natural environments which are a vital store of carbon, and ensure climate justice for all. We campaign for the protection for the world’s growing population of climate refugees, forced to flee their homes in the wake of the climate crisis.

Ending the loss of our critical ‘life support systems’

Supporting environmental defenders

EJF partners and supports grassroots environmental defenders helping them speak truth to power and have their voices heard. We provide essential equipment including drones and micro cameras alongside targeted training that helps to document, expose and end environmental abuses and defend human rights. We focus on empowering women and youth and Indigenous communities, and train journalists to report on environmental injustices. Together we bring unseen issues to the attention of change makers.
