We believe in everyone's power to do good

Empowering you to help end deforestation

Ecosia is a social business run by a small group of dedicated people. We work together to create tools that empower everyone to easily do good by planting trees. We believe our trees have the power to make this world a better place for everyone in it.

  • Business for social good

    Ecosia is a social business, meaning we measure our success by the positive impact we can have on people and the environment. Ecosia has been a certified B Corporation since 2014.

  • People over profits

    Ecosia puts the well-being of people before maximization of profits. We believe that diversity, justice and equal opportunity are the keys to solving the world's most pressing problems.

  • A sustainable planet

    Ecosia is a tool that empowers everyone to make a difference in the world. Together, we can support the environmental, social and economic sustainability of the planet.
