Goals / remit

Goals / remit of the organisation: Nature Code is a non-profit organisation with global reach.
In accordance with our objectives and purpose, per our Statutes:
The Association aims at…
• Contributing to promoting the principle of sustainable development and an environmentally sound economy as key pillars of society, politics and business;
• Conserving biological diversity and protecting and restoring nature and all its components as well as halting the destruction and degradation of nature and the environment;
• Supporting civil society groups in developing countries to protect themselves against the impact of climate change and to adapt to the requirements of a sustainable energy system;
• Opposing activities of society, politics and business that impair the quality of life and the environment; and
• Promoting models and best practice examples for sustainable ways of living and working, both in developed and developing countries.

The Activities of the Association are for…
• Publication and dissemination of information
• Capacity building for civil society groups in developing countries
• Awareness raising for sustainable lifestyles
• Establishing contacts to other groups in society

Nature Code’s mission is to ensure that the wellbeing of the people, plants and creatures living on Planet Earth constitutes the guiding principle of environmental policy making.

Our values
• Healthy ecosystems are the foundation of life on the planet. As a consequence, they must be safeguarded, not commoditised.
• We believe sound policy making should always be based on the precautionary principle.
• We are committed to promoting participation in the policy process, transparency, and access to information for all, regardless of status or location.
• Driven by our commitment to secure accountability at all levels of socio-environmental decision making, we pledge to combat incompetence and double standards wherever they exist

Our work
• Nature Code advocates for well thought-out policy solutions that promote sustainable development, environmental integrity and good governance. We work at national, regional and international levels to ensure that these concerns remain at the heart of policymaking.
• We provide decision makers around the world with fact-based analysis of the issues we cover and, through targeted outreach and training, give a voice to communities affected by climate change and environmental destruction.
• We achieve this by fighting for greater civil society participation in environmental and developmental decision making, while interpreting complexities in policy, process and practice.

Main EU initiatives covered the year before by activities falling under the scope of the Transparency Register:

Carbon Market Watch:

The Carbon Market Watch initiative scrutinises carbon markets and advocates for fair and effective climate protection. With it we are active on three levels – at the UN level, within Europe and the Global South.

It was formerly called CDM Watch and set up in 2009 as an initiative of several international NGOs to provide an independent perspective on individual Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects and to critically assess the political decision-making process affecting wider carbon market developments.

With CDM Watch we successfully advocated for stronger civil society participation, major policy changes at the UN and EU level and uncovered unprecedented scandals in the CDM.
Since 2012, Carbon Market Watch now continues these activities and is expanding its work to other carbon market initiatives, including new market mechanisms, the EU-ETS, Joint Implementation, Emissions Trading and mechanisms to reduce emissions from degradation and deforestation (REDD).
For further information visit this initiative’s website at

Carbon Market Watch Network:

The Carbon Mareket Watch Network is an initiative started by Carbon Market Watch in 2010. Currently it connects more than 800 NGOs and academics from the Global North and South to share information and concerns about carbon offset projects and policies.

Its purpose is to strengthen the voice of civil society in carbon market developments and wider environmental policy-making.

The Network enables people and groups to keep informed about carbon market developments, share concerns with peers and seek support and advice for advocacy efforts at the international policy level.

Through our Capacity Building initiative we have provided our Network a much broader understanding of the obstacles that inhibit people, governments, international organisations and non-governmental organisations from realizing their developmental goals while enhancing the abilities that will allow them to achieve measurable and sustainable results.
