The USA was the birthplace of public interest environmental law, but it takes a global philanthropic strategy to tackle international environmental challenges like climate change, energy transition, deforestation and the protection of our oceans and fisheries. In response to demand from our US partners, in 2016, we established a independent 501 ( c ) (3), ClientEarth US, to provide tax benefits for our State side donors as well as a platform for exploring program partnerships and sharing our experience as well as our expertise across the Atlantic.
