Our mission, vision and values

Our mission is to engage people worldwide in scientific field research and education to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment.

Our vision

We envision a world in which we live within our means and in balance with nature. We believe that future decisions regarding the environment must be based on objective science and must engage and empower people and organisations to act responsibly if they are to be sustainable.

Our values


We believe it is essential that people participate in solving the environmental challenges we face.


We assure that independent research is at the core of our work and that its outcomes determine our goals and priorities.


We are passionate about the opportunity we have to make a meaningful impact on people and the planet.


We seek to inspire people, businesses, and communities with experiences, knowledge, and tools that enable them to take action.


We act in a manner that respects and protects the well-being of people and the environment, including our staff, researchers, volunteers, and the places we work.
