NTM - Nature Trust Malta

NATURE TRUST (MALTA) is a non-profit non-governmental environmental organization working in the Maltese Islands. It is also a privileged partner of World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

Nature Trust Malta (NTM) was founded on 12th December 1962 under the name Natural History Society of Malta. On the 8th January 1999 a merger of four NGOs took place forming Nature Trust (Malta) as we know it today.  These four NGOs are the Society for the Study and Conservation of Nature (SSCN, formerly known as Natural History Society of Malta), Arbor (founded 1989), Verde (founded 1997) and Marine Life Care Group, MLCG.  In 2017 NTM became Nature Trust – FEE Malta as the Malta coordinator for the international Organisation Foundation for Environmental Education based in Denmark

Nature Trust (Malta) is today one of the oldest and largest environmental NGOs in Malta dealing with natural environment of the Maltese Islands. Over the years it has worked and lobbied hard to get legal protection for various plants and animals in the Maltese Islands, helping to save from extinction some of the local endemic species. Today the Trust is very active in environmental education through various means, as it strongly believes that education is the best tool to create awareness on nature conservation. The organisation is also carrying out many environmental projects in Malta such as afforestation, habitat conservation and the creation of marine protected areas.

These projects are very demanding, but NTM feels that this is the mission environmental NGOs should carry to help conserve the Maltese natural heritage.

MTVSz - Magyar Természetvédők Szövetsége / FoE Hungary

Members of the Society are represented in all counties of Hungary, striving for the protection of natural heritage and the prevention of environmental degradation. The Society plays an important role in civil environmental movements across Europe and on a global scale – in cooperation with international organizations, especially the Friends of the Earth International network.

We are radical in our principles: we wish to draw decision makers’ and citizens’ attention to the drivers of environmental problems, by organizing campaigns, professional events, in depth studies and publications, and targeted lobbying.

We do not believe in technical or superficial political solutions, but feel the need to question our current relationship with the environment, and our unsustainable patterns of production and consumption.

IN OUR CAMPAIGNS WE PAY SPECIFIC ATTENTION TO

• mitigation of the effects of climate change,

• integration of sustainability viewpoints into policy-making,

• support of GM-free and environmentally friendly agriculture,

• take action against damaging infrastructural and industrial investments,

• exposing polluting companies and the banks financing them,

• environmental education of citizens, especially young people.

The mission of the National Society of Conservationists (NSC), comprising of over 100 hungarian member groups, is the comprehensive protection of nature, as well as the promotion of sustainable development.

Influencemap

InfluenceMap enables a world where crucial decisions are legitimately influenced and objectively made. We do this by empowering our partners with data-driven and clearly communicated analysis on critical societal issues such as climate change.

Lobbying and Corporate Influence

The Lobbying and Corporate Influence Project accurately assesses, ranks and communicates the extent to which corporations are lobbying climate and energy policy worldwide. Corporate influence plays a major role, both positive and negative, in the creation, implementation, and effectiveness of policy - we have therefore created an interactive and open-source scoring table to capture this influence.

To provide balanced rankings, we map and analyze large amounts of data on corporate and trade association lobbying, communications and spending, collected from a wide range of sources, and then we assign those organizations with a grade — ranging from an A+ to an F. In addition to our on-going, dynamic rankings, we also issue periodic reports on a range of industries, associations and public policy topics. Today, InfluenceMap data is being used by investors, policy makers, campaigners, the media and the corporate sector itself.

Climate Policy Engagement Map

The Climate Policy Engagement Map comprehensive tool to enable positive and practical engagement with climate policy in line with a 2C world. We bring together a global network of experts and expertise and map out regulatory timelines, critical intervention opportunities, existing lobbying activity, stakeholder positions and key contacts.

The Map is used by companies, trade associations, investors and any other stakeholders looking to add their supportive voice to policy makers and regulators globally. It will enable, for example, a California-based global tech firm implementing its RE100 program, to get involved in Indian renewable regulations, where it has a major stake and legitimate role as a local investor, in seeing supportive policy.

InfluenceMap works with Content Partners around the globe with expertise in certain policy areas, sectors and geographies to populate and update our Map. We welcome comments, contributions and queries.

Finance Project

The Finance Project aims to clarify, via analysis and aggregation of publicly available information, the detailed links between the finance sector (banking, investment management, insurance) and private and public companies operating in our global economy. Finance has a pivotal impact on the development of societies globally and the sector is central to many key theories of change employed by the likes of sustainable finance and the divest-invest climate movement. It is important that these, as well as society as a whole, have objective and easily accessible data on which parts of finance are invested in or doing business with which companies.

The extent to which listed companies hold carbon-intensive assets as key components making up the company's valuation is an issue which the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure recommends be clarified by all companies, including in the finance sector. The Finance Project will go some way to tracking climate-risk assets as held by listed asset managers and corporations.
