The GoodPlanet Foundation is a non-governmental organization founded by Yann Arthus-Bertrand in 2005, supporting ecology and sustainable development.

Activities

The GoodPlanet Foundation is mainly concerned with the distribution of pedagogic documents and the organization of events for raising awareness of the importance of sustainable development such as the ecology film-festival "GoodPlanet" in Rio de Janeiro, the exhibition "6 billion others", conferences and events for enterprises.

It creates posters for educational institutions about topics such as sustainable development, bio-diversity, and forests. It publishes a catalog of consumer products it considers environmentally responsible.

It also organizes its activities through websites. It leads actioncarbone.org, a stock promotion program aimed at reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, which includes a service offsetting CO2 emissions. It also manages the site, goodplanet.info, established in 2009, which is an educational website aimed at informing the public about sustainable development. It finances school projects and environment-conservation projects.

In 2009, the mayor of Bordeaux, Alain Juppé, was elected Vice-President of GoodPlanet. It handled the international distribution of Human which premiered on 12 September 2015.
