ABOUT

Mighty Earth

Mighty Earth is a global campaign organization that works to protect the environment. The program was inspired by the wonder of Nature and the potential for ordinary people to band together to achieve outsized, unexpected results. It focuses on the big issues: conserving threatened landscapes like tropical rainforests, protecting oceans, and solving climate change.


Mighty Earth campaigns and its 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. Steering Committee 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. We’re proud to partner with The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on our rubber work.


Since April 2017, Mighty Earth has been a proud member of the High Carbon Stock Approach Steering Group.  It is committed to the HCS approach and will work to support the application of the HCS methodology around the world.


Whether rallying for change internationally or locally, Mighty Earth is building a movement to protect the environment.


Mighty Earth is a fiscally sponsored project of the Center for International Policy.
