Like the environment itself, Earthjustice’s work transcends national borders.
Since 1991, our International Program has been partnering with organizations and communities around the world to establish, strengthen, and enforce national and international legal protections for the environment and human health. Learn about some of the places where we work around the world.
We were one of the first organizations to advocate for the international right of all people to a healthy and sustainable environment, a principle that remains at the heart of our work today.
We are also guided by our commitment to ending systems and practices that result in environmental harms, including the burdens of the fossil fuel economy falling disproportionately on Indigenous peoples and low-income communities in the Global South.
To end the many harms of fossil fuel consumption, we collaborate with partners to catalyze the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy in key places like Australia, Indonesia, Latin America, and South Africa. Together, we oppose fossil fuel production and consumption where those activities cause the greatest harm, challenge barriers to renewable energy, accelerate the global transition to clean energy, and increase access to low-cost clean energy for all.
We’re also building international partnerships to protect highly migratory ocean wildlife from increasing — and unsustainable — human activity, including overfishing. In particular, we focus on defending marine predators, such as sharks, which are essential to healthy ocean ecosystems.
