Our impact

For more than 30 years, we’ve been fighting for environmental justice.

We’ve had some incredible successes inside and outside the courtroom for the people, places and wildlife we love.

We pioneered climate finance risk litigation globally, filing the world’s first legal action against a superannuation fund for failing to adequately consider climate change risks.

Representing Friends of Leadbeater’s Possum, we won forest litigation that prompted Bunnings to ban the sale of native timbers and forced governments to end logging in Victoria’s old-growth forests.

We stopped AGL’s proposed gas terminal at Westernport Bay, protecting a diverse and vulnerable ecosystem of pristine Ramsar-listed wetlands and beaches in Victoria.

We stopped a 1,675-hectare open cut mine from going ahead, after the Minister for Planning assessed the environmental effects of the Fingerboards mineral sands mine as unacceptable.  

Our lawyers exposed Adani’s disgraceful track record of breaching environmental laws internationally.

We helped stop a new coal-fired power station in the Latrobe Valley, setting important legal precedent and protecting the community health’s from more toxic pollution.  

We kept the chainsaws out of habitat for fire-affected threatened wildlife, following the catastrophic Black Summer bushfires.

We worked with community and government to develop landmark legal protection for the Yarra River (Birrarung), including Traditional Owner oversight. 

Our legal team brought national attention and continues to shine the spotlight on the severe health effects of toxic pollution from coal-fired power stations.

We helped secure Victoria’s strong climate change laws and work with government and community to ensure they are enforced.  

Our lawyers secured the right for Victorian communities to take polluters to court.
