About Us

We help people, businesses and governments reduce their impact on the environment


Established in 1992, Planet Ark is one of Australia's most respected and trusted environmental organisations. We are focussed on solutions and making positive environmental actions accessible to everyone.

Positive actions are at the core of every decision we make. We are defined by what we are for, not what we are against. Our goal is to build a better world – one where humans not only live in balance with nature, but help it to thrive.

Who we are

Planet Ark Environmental Foundation is an Australian not-for-profit organisation that helps individuals, communities, governments and businesses reduce their impact on the environment. We are one of Australia’s leading environmental behaviour change organisations, with a focus on working collaboratively and positively.

Our Story

Planet Ark is trusted

After more than two decades as pioneers of environmental behaviour change, Planet Ark was rated by Australians as the #1 organisation for operating in an ethical, responsible and environmentally friendly manner in 2018 (Mobium Group, 2018 Living LOHAS 6).

Planet Ark is unashamedly populist

Our programs build on our positive and action-based philosophy to work with a broad range of individuals, communities, businesses, schools and all levels of government. We endeavour to represent and be accessible to all. This approach strikes a strong chord amongst the millions of Australians who take part in our programs each year.

Planet Ark is non-confrontational

At Planet Ark, we want to help you take positive environmental action, whether it be at your home, school or workplace. 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 environment. This means we will work with a range of businesses across a number of sectors. We endeavour to work with whichever government is in office to bring about genuine environmental change.

Planet Ark is a charity

Planet Ark relies on support from the community, businesses and government to deliver our much-loved and essential programs. We receive generous financial support from a range of businesses and government groups, as well as individuals, who are committed to a future in which people live in balance with nature.
