Description of the charities activities and outcomes
Planet Ark Environmental Foundation is an Australian not-for-profit organisation with a vision of a world where people live in balance with nature. Established in 1992, we are one of Australia’s leading environmental behaviour change organisations with a focus on working collaboratively and positively.

We help people, governments, schools and businesses reduce their impact on the environment in three key areas: by promoting sustainable resource use for a circular economy; supporting low carbon lifestyles; and connecting people with nature.

We create and share simple, positive environmental actions – for everyone. Our campaigns and programs build on our positive and action-based philosophy to work with a broad range of individuals, schools, councils and workplaces.
