Who we are
Planet Ark Environmental Foundation is an Australian not-for-profit organisation with a vision of a world where people live in balance with nature. Established in 1992, we are one of Australia’s leading environmental behaviour change organisations with a focus on working collaboratively and positively.
To unite people, businesses and governments through positive environmental actions.
- To promote sustainable resource use
- To encourage a low carbon lifestyle
- To connect people with nature
Planet Ark is unashamedly populist!
Our campaigns and programs build on our positive and action-based philosophy to work with a broad range of individuals, schools, councils and workplaces. In short, we define ourselves by what we are for rather than what we are against. This approach strikes a strong chord amongst the millions of Australians who take part in our campaigns each year.
Planet Ark is non confrontational
At Planet Ark, we want to offer you positive environmental actions. We'll inspire you with ideas, solutions and suggestions for how you can improve your environmental impact... and give you a big pat on the back when you do!
Planet Ark is non-political
We want to see people, businesses and governments working together to protect our planet's ability to thrive. This means we will work with a range of businesses across a number of sectors and we endeavour to work with whichever government is in office to bring about genuine environmental change.
Planet Ark is a for-purpose charity
As a small charity, Planet Ark relies on support from the community to maintain our program of essential campaigns and donations continue to form a critical component of our growth.
We are lucky to receive generous financial support from a range of businesses and government groups who are committed to a future in which people live in balance with nature.
You can find out more about our regular giving program via our Donate page.
