ClientEarth is rated by the Environmental Funders Network as the most effective environmental institution in the UK. ClientEarth is a charity that uses the power of the law to protect the planet and the people who live on it.
Their lawyers and environmental experts work around the globe to fight against climate change and to halt the destruction of the natural world. They ensure existing environmental laws are respected and they help governments develop effective environmental policies.
They have a decade of legal wins against those damaging nature and exacerbating climate change. Their work has postponed or stopped 21 coal plants in the UK and Poland, preventing the release of over 64 million tonnes of CO2 annually; they have trained over 1,500 environmental judges and prosecutors in China; and they are leading the legal fight for clean air – taking the UK government to court over illegal air pollution and winning three times, pushing forward the Ultra Low Emission Zones regulations in London and now are bringing similar legal challenges across Europe.
A donation made to ClientEarth will help their international team of lawyers in holding governments and institutions to account and will support their efforts to tackle climate change and protect nature.
