Green Alternative

Founded in 2000, Green Alternative aims to promote sustainable development and protect Georgia’s environmental and cultural heritage. To achieve this, Green Alternative operates as a watchdog on environmental issues, mobilises communities, investigates and challenges project financing, litigates at national and international courts, petitions international accountability mechanisms, and advocates for improved public access to information and decision-making processes. Its current priorities include challenging dubious and opaque infrastructure, energy and extractive projects; investigating international development finance, ensuring public access to information and decision-making on environmental and development issues; and protecting Georgia’s biodiversity and the marginalised communities reliant upon it.
