The RAN Strategy
Challenging Corporate Power
Rainforest Action Network has been challenging corporate power for more than three decades. Our strategy is right there in our name: Action Network. From the very beginning, we knew that it would take people coming together to take action, raise our collective voice, demand that corporate profits should not come at the expense of people and planet.
To protect our future, keep forests standing, and protect the climate, we have to stop expanding the very industries that are causing climate chaos and destroying forests. People power is putting the pressure on the world’s biggest companies to be on the right side of history, and people are winning. We’ve proven that people have the power to stop these industries and there’s no going back.
We stand in solidarity with communities who are fighting on the frontlines to end systemic racism. The social, economic and environmental issues that the world is facing are interconnected and interdependent. The fight for Environmental Justice is inextricably linked to the fight for Racial Justice.
We partner with local, Indigenous and Frontline communities to create smart campaigns that exert pressure on the corporate culprits responsible for rainforest destruction, massive pollution, and pushing species toward extinction. We fight to get actionable policies and demand that human rights, local and Indigenous rights are fundamental to any new corporate policies.
