About Pacific Environment

For more than three decades, Pacific Environment has worked to serve people, wildlife, and ecosystems by promoting grassroots activism, strengthening communities, leading strategic campaigns, and working for policy changes. We are headquartered in San Francisco, with regional offices or staff across the United States, China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Republic of Korea, Singapore, and Thailand, and with partnerships that span the Pacific Rim.

Pacific Environment and our partners fight fossil fuels and champion clean energy, challenge industrial models that disregard local interests, and bring grassroots concerns—and whenever possible grassroots leaders—to national and international bodies to advocate for policy solutions that reflect community needs and values.

Pacific Environment operates as a campaigner, coalition-builder, grant maker, and thought partner. We provide direct funding and technical assistance to grassroots environmental activists in the regions where they work. We complement these community-led efforts with national and international coalition-building and advocacy to decision-makers to support policy changes that prioritize local interests and resolve the root causes of environmental challenges. Pacific Environment has a strong track record of local and international achievement.
