Earthwatch Corporate Partner, American Express

American Express

American Express is a globally integrated payments company, providing customers with access to products, insights, and experiences that enrich lives and build business success.


American Express and Earthwatch collaborate on education and volunteer programs across the globe that help promote a deep connection between the environment, sustainability, and business practices. These programs include science-based activities designed to strengthen awareness of climate change drivers and impacts, and hands-on opportunities for Amex colleagues to make a positive difference in local communities. The activities cover a broad range of topics that align with Amex’s efforts to advance climate solutions and back low-carbon communities.



Earthwatch depends on donations—above and beyond what we raise from volunteers who participate on our expeditions—in order to deliver our global conservation mission. In fact, volunteer contributions provide only half of the total resources Earthwatch needs to sustain over 40 field research expeditions, a wide variety of educational programs, corporate sustainability trainings, and more each year.
