Mighty Earth is tackling the biggest challenges to Nature and climate. We are obsessed with impact and aspire to be the most effective environmental advocacy organization in the world. Our goal: protect Earth for Nature and secure a climate that allows life to flourish.
We focus on the issues that receive little investment relative to their potential: protecting Nature, restoring wildlife, and decarbonizing industry.
Mighty Earth transforms industries by creating a ‘Perfect Storm’ of campaigns, communications, and practical engagement with decision-makers that can rapidly disrupt even the most entrenched interests. Our work aims to break the link between economic growth and environmental destruction by creating a virtuous cycle of private sector, government, and community action. To achieve this, we do more than just draw attention to bad actors. We strategically apply pressure, targeting fulcrum parts of value chains to catalyze industry-wide change. While we partner with companies to drive concrete solutions, we also maintain our independence to ensure we can hold those companies accountable should they fail to deliver on their promises.
Mighty Earth is laser-focused on delivery. We’re well known for our campaigns that can catalyze commitments from the largest industries. But more than half of our work focuses on ensuring delivery of those commitments. At Mighty Earth, we let data show us the truth and challenge assumptions with science as our guide. Our data comes from best-in-class research, satellite monitoring, and partnering with local communities to be our on-the-ground eyes and ears.
“Mighty Earth is doing brave and vital work, holding powerful corporations and governments to account.”
– Monica Lennon, Member of Scottish Parliament
Protecting and restoring Nature represents more than one third of the potential to reduce climate emissions...
...yet receives just three percent of climate funding. That gap is where Mighty Earth comes in.
We have ambitious goals. To achieve them, we need to continue to build the team, infrastructure, and culture that allows us to scale.
Elements of our approach are unusual in the NGO sector. We purposefully draw not only from the world of campaigns, but also from best business practices, market research, and classical military strategy. We have adopted principles such as concentration of force, momentum, and persistence. And we promote a nimble, entrepreneurial, results-focused culture that allows us to punch way above our weight.
