    Canada climate & energy

    There's no denying it: Canada is not on track to meet its climate commitments. In recent years our emissions have gone up, not down. Oil and gas production is now both our largest source and fastest growing cause of emissions, which means it will never be possible to meet our targets while continuing to increase fossil fuel production. As Canadians we have a responsibility to make sure our country is doing its part to address the climate crisis and to hold our elected leaders to account. Are you ready?

    Communities standing up to oil and gas

    If we want to combat climate change, we can’t afford to keep extracting and burning fossil fuels — much less the dirtiest and most extreme kinds like tar sands. That’s why we’re pulling out all the stops to delay, hamper, and ultimately block new extreme oil projects. We know that we need more renewable energy — not more oil trains, tankers, pipelines and refineries — and we’re willing to fight for that future. Are you in?

    Fossil-free towns and regions

    We’re working with local activists and governments up and down the West Coast to create fossil-free towns and regions. In some places, we’re supporting legislation and moratoriums that block all new fossil fuel development. in others, we’re kickstarting the equitable transition to electric vehicles—but in all of them, we’re creating a cleaner, safer place for people to live.

    Safeguarding forests for our climate and for our future

    The old growth. The Boreal. The Western Temperate. Working with Indigenous allies and local communities, we’re stopping unsustainable logging everywhere.

    Previously known as ForestEthics, Stand was founded to stop the clearcutting of these vital ecosystems. Be a part of the change.

    Ocean protection and shipping

    What do the shipping and oil industry have in common? Both are accelerating climate impacts in the fragile Arctic region. We’re fighting to protect the Arctic and stand with impacted communities by cleaning up the shipping industry and preventing oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

    Corporate climate pollution

    From Starbucks to Victoria Secret, Staples and Levi’s, we’ve helped move some of the world’s biggest brands.

    Our corporate campaigns don’t just focus on changing the behavior of one company. Instead, they aim for systemic change by transforming entire sectors. Together with everyone in the Stand community, we’re taking on some of the biggest polluters in the world. And we’re winning.
