Stand believes that protecting our planet is everyone's business. Because of our work, environmentally responsible businesses and governments will thrive. Natural systems will be protected, and the people and wildlife that depend on them will prosper. Markets will be more transparent and ethical.

We imagine monumental success, and then make it happen. Our commitment to a sustainable workplace ensures that we treat each other with the same reverence as the wild places, wildlife, and people that we serve.

Stand's campaigns consider all of the issues that affect wild places and the wildlife and people that depend on them-from biodiversity to air and water quality to climate change. We expand our work to new regions or issue areas when we can bring the leverage and power needed to win.
