Protecting Human Rights

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.
