About us
Funding and governance

Friends of the Earth is two distinct organisations

Both are committed to:

  • the protection and improvement of the environment
  • a good life for everyone who lives on our planet
  • a green economy that respects the limits of the natural world

Being a charity and a limited company means we can do our job better

Most of our campaigning work is carried out by the charity, Friends of the Earth Trust.

Friends of the Earth Limited is primarily responsible for our local to global network, through its management of the organisation's relationship with local groups, with Friends of the Earth Europe and Friends of the Earth International.

The two companies share staff and other resources, and the boards of the two companies work closely together in pursuit of their compatible environmental purposes.
