Our

Mission

To address environmental issues through the lenses of science in order to clarify current difficulties in the understanding of these issues and thereby minimize conflicts arising from them.

Our Vision

An Environmentally conscious and well-informed public, a responsive government that enacts or implement rationale laws and policies and a private sector (both for profit and non-profit) that is regulated fairly.

Our Strategies

To invoke the assistance of relevant scientific experts whenever specific environmental issues are raised and integrate their expert opinions into a form that can be easily-understood by all who are concerned about the issues.

Whenever possible, to forward this explanation to the relevant government agency in the hope that affected laws and policies may be sharpened and better enforced.
