Friends of the Earth is a movement – we work with a huge range of charities and other campaign groups.

Aldersgate Group

This alliance of businesses, non-governmental organisations and unions promotes environmental standards that strengthen the UK’s economy. It’s involved in high-level dialogue with government on skills, resource efficiency, and finance.

Campaign for Freedom of Information (CFOI)

We work jointly with CFOI to ensure that access to information legislation is robust, properly enforced and applied.

Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH)

CIEH is supporting Friends of the Earth's Get Serious About CO2 campaign. The organisation is concerned about the health impacts of climate change - for example through the possible flooding of sewage works in extreme weather events.   

Public Interest Environmental Lawyers

Friends of the Earth helped set up the annual conference which brings together students, campaigners and practitioners who want to advance public interest environmental law.

Restore UK

Restore UK was established in 2001 as a grant-making charity to invest in the protection and restoration of Britain's natural habitat. This vision has since expanded to incorporate environmental and biodiversity issues globally.

Spring Alliance

The Spring Alliance is a coalition of European environment, social and development organisations, and the European Trade Union Council. It has drawn up and is promoting a manifesto for the new European Commission. Friends of the Earth was involved in developing the text on resource use.

The Climate Coalition

Along with sister organisations Stop Climate Chaos Cymru and Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, The Climate Coalition brings together over 130 organisations reaching across the UK to show our love for all the things we want to protect from climate change, and to ask politicians to put aside their differences and commit to doing whatever is necessary to protect them.

UK Without Incineration Network (UKWIN)

Friends of the Earth worked with local activists to help set up this network of UK anti-incineration campaigners. 

UK Youth Climate Coalition (UKYCC) 

The UK Youth Climate Coalition aims to inspire, empower and mobilise ordinary young people to take positive action on climate change.
