Third Generation Environmentalism (E3G)


E3G is an independent not-for-profit organisation, established in 2004, that works in the public interest to accelerate the global transition to sustainable development.

We build coalitions to achieve carefully defined outcomes, chosen for their capacity to leverage change. E3G founders had been working together and developing their shared thinking for several years before the organisation was constituted in 2004.

Initially undertaking high-level diplomatic activities linked to the personal experience and influence of its founders, E3G has since been gently growing its portfolio of activities. E3G now has four strategic programmes, twelve additional members of staff, and an extensive network of aligned individuals and organisations.


E3G’s existing activities on Climate and Energy Security include working with EU institutions, governments, businesses and NGOs to accelerate plans to build Carbon Capture demonstration plants in China and across the EU.

We also undertake strategic engagement in processes which can help deliver a reframing of the climate change debate, prioritising the G8, the EU Energy Policy review and by contributing to the building of a coalition around a robust EU climate security position.
