James Thornton, Founding CEO of ClientEarth, wins Charity Leader Of The Year 2020 at The Charity Times Awards.
James started ClientEarth from the corner of his kitchen nearly fifteen years ago.
In the years since, much has happened, all of it demonstrating the power of the law to protect people and nature. With James at the helm, our staff has grown to 200, with offices in London, Brussels, Berlin, Warsaw and Beijing.
What we have accomplished so far is based on two things: the talent and the passion of the team that has joined me in this work. Of all our triumphs, the team I lead is the most awe-inspiring success. Thank you, this win is for you all.
As we celebrate his Charity Leader of the Year win, we also laud some examples of our success over the years:
Congratulations to all who won and were shortlisted this year at The Charity Times Awards 2020. We’d also like to thank the team at Charity Times for all the work they do.
And thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way. Please keep supporting us. Our mission is to save civilization, and we have no doubt we will succeed, if we all work together.
Join James and other leading experts on 23rd of September at the online opening of The Earth Convention. James will be discussing the twin crises of Covid-19 and climate change and how to ensure a green recovery.
