Earthwatch Business Partnership Approach

Our Approach to Partnering with Business


Start a conversation with us to get your company involved.

Earthwatch works with corporate partners around the world to deliver hands-on, science-based programs that demonstrate a deep connection between the environment, sustainability, and business practices. We have partnered with some of the world’s biggest blue-chip companies, including HSBC, UPS, Ernst & Young, IBM, and Aloca.

You will have a partner who is invested in you—committed to understanding your corporate social responsibility goals, the need for customer and employee engagement, and the importance of environmental sustainability to your triple bottom line.

There are a number of benefits to partnering with Earthwatch, including:

  • Demonstrating leadership in addressing challenges to environmental sustainability
  • Employee innovation and action for sustainability
  • Increased employee loyalty and retention
  • Benefits to the customers and communities you serve
  • Networking with other companies, non-governmental organizations, scientists, and environmental stakeholders


Earthwatch is an international nonprofit, with a global capacity to create change. We run programs in over 35 countries, and have offices in the US, UK, Australia, Japan, India, and Hong Kong. We have a proven track record of delivering major partnerships across the globe.


Earthwatch is uniquely placed to support businesses with their response to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our strong scientific background and extensive experience of working in partnership has helped us to develop interdisciplinary programs that reach across many of the SDGs. We help our partners to understand how they can focus on material issues and to collect and support business-relevant science aligned to their SDG priorities.

Earthwatch is also a signatory of the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment. We are committed to the vision of a circular economy for plastic in which it never becomes waste. By working side-by-side, businesses, nonprofits, and governments have the power to tackle plastic pollution at the source.


Earthwatch has partnered with blue-chip companies, including HSBC, Shell, Rio Tinto, Swire Group, Cadbury Kraft, Ernst & Young, and Microsoft.

Earthwatch partners with organizations across all sectors of business to improve both environmental and corporate sustainability.

See who we work with:

“HSBC’s relationship with Earthwatch spans over a decade. Through our partnership, many thousands of HSBC employees have been involved first-hand in tackling climate change and environmental issues. They have contributed to making HSBC a more sustainable business and have gathered invaluable data to improve scientists’ understanding of the global environment. This activity makes a real difference and is at the heart of HSBC values”
