Achievements

Every campaign we launch begins with conviction, passion, and a relentless commitment to create the world we know is possible. We campaign to win, selecting issues where we believe we can have an impact. Sometimes it takes twenty years; sometimes only two. You’ll notice that we use a variety of strategies, which can make it hard to explain ourselves in a sentence or two. But that challenge is a small price to pay for the proven track record that comes from developing the most effective approaches to solving a problem and successfully executing a range of solutions.

Here are some of our highlights:

  • Stopping the Enbridge Pipeline

    View

    Some ideas simply cannot stand- like punching a pipeline full of toxic tar sands oil through unceded First Nation’s territory against their absolute opposition. Oh, and did we mention running it through the Great Bear Rainforest, putting the health of a global treasure - and the entire West coast of Canada - at risk. That’s the story of the Enbridge pipeline. Well, it’s the shortest version of that story.

  • Protecting the Sacred Headwaters from Shell Oil and all gas drilling

    View

    In a far northwest corner of British Columbia, the watersheds of three important rivers - the Skeena, the Stikine and the Nass - hold crucial wild salmon habitat, pristine wilderness and deep cultural heritage. When Shell Oil launched plans to drill for coalbed methane, we knew we were in for a high-stakes campaign. We helped mobilize local community members and concerned people from around the world, while collaborating with the First Nations whose territories encompass the headwaters of these three major rivers.

  • Protecting the Great Bear Rainforest

    View

    The Great Bear Rainforest is very wild and very big – two thirds the size of Ireland. It’s a stunning place of ancient trees a thousand years old and home to remarkable animals like Spirit bears, rainforest wolves, whales, tailed frogs and salmon. It has also been home for time immemorial to more than two dozen First Nations.

    We don’t like to wax poetic, but truly, this is one of those places - a landscape that will make your jaw drop.

  • Protecting North America's Boreal Forest

    View

    Larger than the Amazon forest, North America’s Boreal forest is a key regulator of our global climate, supports some of the planet's largest populations of wildlife such as grizzlies, wolves, woodland caribou and lynx, and is the nesting grounds for one-third of the continent's songbirds. Did we also mention that it cleans our air and our water, housing more fresh water in wetlands, lakes, and rivers than any other place on earth?

    Sound like a place worth protecting? We couldn’t agree more.

  • Getting 20+ major US companies to move away from high-carbon fuels

    View

    Given a choice, most people would rather avoid the most polluting forms of energy. And so, we built a campaign around this common sense notion that major US corporations would not want to be associated with some of the most polluting oil on Earth - Canadian tar sands.

    By daylighting companies’ use of fuel from tar sands, we put pressure on them to shift their fuel consumption to less polluting sources.
