Stand.earth

Stand.earth (formerly ForestEthics) was founded nearly twenty years ago by a group of dedicated people who were working day in and day out to solve a big problem: What do you do when the health and foundation of communities and their environment are being undermined?

Our founders were leading a global effort to stop the logging of rare thousand-year-old forests on the coast of British Columbia. Indigenous communities had lived there since time immemorial and their lands were being logged at an alarming rate, putting their way of life and a global biogem at risk. 

Stand.earth forges supportive partnerships with communities who are personally engaged in the social, economic, and environmental crises we face. Frontline communities bear the impacts of social and environmental injustices and are also best equipped to envision solutions to these issues. Stand.earth builds democratic and equitable relationships to elevate local voices and advance solutions that respect different points of view.
