About Us

The EmeraldPlanet International Foundation (the EmeraldPlanet) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization with its headquarters and television production studios in Washington, D.C. USA. Created in 1973, the EmeraldPlanet’s activities include the identification of 1,000 best practices as they pertain to the environment and the promotion of alternative energy sources. The EmeraldPlanet’s leadership and associated experts work with research institutions, businesses, governments, universities, healthcare providers, clean water advocates, and non-governmental and community-based organizations with the common goal of arresting, and possibly reversing the ravages of climate change.

The EmeraldPlanet works in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in collaboration with the PanAmerican-PanAfrican Association (Pa/Pa), a 501(c)(3) organization. We engage the world community through internet and television broadcasts, publishing, education, research, training, idea exchanges, competitions, and advocacy.
