Earth Economics is an environmental non-governmental organization (NGO) based in the state of Washington that is devoted to promoting ecosystem health and ecological economics, and to halting the globalization of unsustainable economic policies. It does so through organization, education and advocacy. Its focus is in the areas of toxics, forests, fisheries and global trade policy. Earth Economics works in its local Puget Sound region and around the world on projects fulfilling three primary program objectives:
- Developing and using economic tools to support projects and policies designed to protect and restore ecosystems and local economies.
- Providing clients with technical training and subject matter expertise to support effective policies for management of public and private resources.
- Reviewing current and collaborating on new international finance and trade agreements that recognize the full value of humans and the environment.
