AboutGlobal Witness

Our goal is a more sustainable,just and equal planet where humanity is propelled forward, away from the toxicpractices of the past. This means fossil fuels staying in the ground,climate-critical forests standing tall and those on the frontline fighting theclimate crisis, who defend our planet, are protected from persecution andattacks.

We want justice forthose disproportionately affected by the climate crisis: people in the globalsouth, indigenous communities and communities of colour, women and younger generations.And that the necessary energy transition is done equitably and with theinterests of those groups in mind.

To do this we have tostand up to the corporate drivers of the climate crisis – the fossil fuelcompanies that continue to extract and burn when the science is telling us tostop, the global banks financing deforestation and the businesses that turn ablind eye, or worse are complicit in, attacks on defenders. This also includestargeting the role of big tech companies that are allowing misinformation andhate to be spread in the increasingly online world.

For us to succeed, weneed to embody the principles we fight for. Global Witness strives forcohesion, solidarity, and inclusion as only together can we protect one anotherand the planet to build a better and more just future.
