The Environment Centre NT (ECNT) is the peak community sector environment organisation in the Northern Territory. We have been working hard to protect the Territory environment since 1983.

ECNT is lobbying for a strong Climate Policy for the Territory, including a net zero emissions target by 2050 and a ban on shale gas fracking.

ECNT advocates for protection of the uniqueTerritory landscapes and biodiversity. This includes through strong environmental legislation, including stronger laws for land clearing and mining rehabilitation.

ECNT works closely with local community groups Climate Action Darwin, Waste Free NT and COOLmob. We are helping to foster sustainable communities by supporting and empowering the community members to take action.

We achieve this by
advocating for the improvement of environmental policies and performance of governments, landholders, business and industry;
partnering on projects and campaigns with conservation and climate organisations, governments, Indigenous organisations, community groups, businesses, and landholders;
raising awareness amongst community, government, business and industry about environmental issues and assisting people to reduce their environmental impact;
supporting community members to participate in decision making processes and action;
recognising the rights, aspirations, responsibilities and knowledge of the Territory’s Indigenous peoples;
acknowledging that environmental issues have a social dimension.

Our vision is thriving nature and a sustainable future for all Territorians, and we’re working towards this through our mission to inspire, support and take action that protects the environment. The Environment Centre NT’s campaigns are the way we achieve our goals:

1. The Northern Territory is on track to be a zero-carbon economy by 2030
2. The Northern Territory has strong, transparent environmental law, policy and practice
3. People everywhere are speaking up and acting for the Northern Territory Environment
