The Bellona Foundation is an independent non-profit organisation that aims to meet and fight the climate challenges, through identifying and implementing effective and sustainable environmental solutions. Founded in 1986 as a direct action protest group, we have become a recognised evidence-based and solution-oriented organisation with offices in Oslo, Brussels, and Russia, and activities across countries, including Germany, the Netherlands, Central-Eastern Europe, the USA and the UK. Altogether, some 60 engineers, ecologists, nuclear physicists, economists, lawyers, political scientists and journalists work at Bellona. We work towards reaching a greater ecological understanding, protection of nature, the environment and health. We are engaged in a broad spectrum of current national and international environmental questions and issues around the world.

We began pushing for electric cars as early as the late 1980s and have been advocating transformative climate action in industry for decades. Being a group of evidence-based environmentalists, we focus particularly on raising awareness and understanding on ignored and contentious issues, promoting a holistic, system-wide approach, while simultaneously acting as a watch-dog against greenwashing. Our goal is to implement measures, which can effectively reduce CO2 emissions and that are implementable today.
