About Pure Earth

Pure Earth is the leading international not-for-profit dedicated to reducing pollution, saving lives and protecting the planet. Pollution is the leading cause of death in the world, more than HIV, AIDS and TB combined.

Guided by our commitment to transparency, collaboration, impact measurement and technical excellence, Pure Earth works with partners around the world to sustainably address the root causes of lead pollution and mercury pollution.

Established in 1999, Pure Earth is also a pioneer in developing evidence-based solutions to mercury and lead poisoning and pollution. In addition, Pure Earth spearheaded a landmark pollution report published in 2017 in the world-renowned medical journal, The Lancet, which released new data on the health and economic impacts of pollution as well as the solutions.
