Earthworks’ Mission


Earthworks is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting communities and the environment from the impacts of irresponsible mineral and energy development while seeking sustainable solutions.

We fulfill our mission by working with communities and grassroots groups to reform government policies, improve corporate practices, influence investment decisions and encourage responsible materials sourcing and consumption.


We expose the health, environmental, economic, social and cultural impacts of mining and energy extraction through work informed by sound science.
