Earthworm Foundation is a non-profit organisation built on values and driven by the desire to positively impact the relationship between people and nature.
With most of our staff operating directly on the ground where the issues are, we work with our members and partners to make value chains an engine of prosperity for communities and ecosystems.
In fact, we see a world where forests are a boundless source of materials and a home for biodiversity; communities see their rights respected and have opportunities to develop; workers are seen as productive partners; and agriculture becomes the instrument to feed a hungry planet and keep our climate stable.
We envision a global society that respects itself and the needs of nature.
To achieve our vision, we partner with businesses and other with the same goal of solving the social and environmental challenges our world faces, working in a pragmatic way from boardrooms to farms, boots on the ground.
Over the years Earthworm Foundation has changed and evolved, but fundamentally our mission has remained the same; to transform peoples' relationships with nature and with each other. Discover more of our history.

Since its onset as the Tropical Forest Trust down through to its latest evolution as Earthworm Foundation, one thing has remained absolutely fixed in our organisation’s DNA – its VALUES.
Our values are our greatest asset. They guide us forward and serve as the cultural cornerstone, as we interact with our stakeholders and peers. It is no coincidence that the first step to engage people in our work typically puts values at the centre of the conversation. We strive to live by our own but also inspire others to live by theirs.
Members make far-reaching commitments to respect people and nature in their supply chains. They work with us on an ongoing journey of improvement and innovation.
