Stand.earth is an environmental nonprofit whose campaigns protect rainforests, fight dirty fossil fuel projects, and stabilize our climate by addressing the destructive impacts of the logging, oil, shipping, and fashion industries. Stand’s campaigns have stopped pipelines, protected more than 65 million acres of endangered forests, and secured transformative environmental commitments from Fortune 500 companies.
With support from the Pisces Foundation, Stand launched its #DirtyShips campaign to reduce GHG and black carbon emissions from the shipping industry by focusing on the cruise industry. In March, Stand achieved an important milestone for the environment and public health when Carnival announced that it is no longer using heavy fuel oil on ships traveling in the Arctic. The news came on the heels of several important campaign moments, including the release of Stand’s report exposing poor air quality aboard Carnival ships, rivaling cities such as Beijing and Santiago.
