Protecting the environment with intelligence.EIA works to achieve tangible changes in the global economy that make local and sustainable management of the world’s natural resources possible.Working in London since 1984 and in Washington, D.C. since 1989, EIA has identified and implemented specific solutions to the world’s most pressing environmental problems. Our campaigns to protect endangered wildlife, forests, and the global climate operate at the intersection between increasing global demand and trade and the accelerating loss of natural resources and species. EIA takes advantage of its independence and mobility to produce game-changing primary evidence and analysis of these problems and to build lasting alliances, institutions, and policies to implement solutions.
EIA’s mission is to protect the environment with intelligence.
By pioneering the use of undercover investigations, EIA has successfully exposed environmental crime around the world. Intelligence reports, documentary evidence, campaigning expertise, and an international advocacy network enable EIA to achieve far-reaching environmental protection by spurring changes in market demand, government policy, and enforcement related to global trade in wildlife and environmental products.
