About Stand

Stand (formerly ForestEthics) is nonprofit environmental organization working to create a world where respect for people and the environment comes first. Our campaigns challenge destructive corporate and governmental practices, demand accountability, and create solutions that support all of us — and the environment and climate we depend upon.

Stand’s strategic approach and fierce determination have yielded extraordinary results: since 1999, we have secured the protection of 65 million acres of wilderness, shifted billions of dollars of corporate purchasing toward responsible options, and changed the environmental practices of more than 100 major U.S. corporations. We are a leading voice in the effort to protect our communities, climate, and environment from the risks associated with outdated, climate-polluting energy. 

Stand recognizes and respects the sovereignty of First Nations and tribes, as well as the rights of indigenous people and frontline communities. These communities are often first and most directly impacted, and they provide critical leadership in developing solutions. 

Stand is an equal opportunity employer; we have a strong commitment to equity and inclusion, and value the leadership and skills of people from diverse backgrounds. People of color, LGBTQ persons, and people from other historically marginalized backgrounds are encouraged to apply. 

Stand operates in the United States and Canada.
