Please donate and help us save the planet!

The Ecologic Institute is not-for-profit private organisation acting in the public interest. It has no endowment or core support from any government, business or foundation. It works independently and finances itself from its projects.

Our future is at stake. Ecologic Institute develops policy relevant solutions for local and global problems. As an environmental think tank, we are working passionately towards a clean, climate friendly, resource efficient world. In this world, we live a good life within the planetary boundaries: Global warming is limited to well below 2°C, & biodiversity, our seas and soils are protected effectively. In creating the world we want to live in, we also need to address the social dimensions.

With your donations, we can help to protect the environment and our common future in addition to our project work. You also help us to remain independent financially and thus politically. Please help us strengthening the environmental agenda, and support our other activities, notably international exchanges and the mobility of young professionals.
