ARIA explores power, influence and corporate accountability in the climate and nature space. We use research, analysis, data insights and investigative approaches to reveal and challenge obstacles to a cleaner and more sustainable world.
We focus on issues that are central to a successful transition to a sustainable world, including fossil fuels, carbon trading, agriculture and livestock, and PR and legal frameworks.
ARIA stands for ‘analysis, research, insight, action’. Our team are experienced analysts, investigators and former journalists who combine issue area expertise with specialist data, analysis and research skills. Our team was established in 2021, and since then we have worked with partners in the media and civil society to explore how efforts to address sustainability challenges are resisted by corporate interests, and others. Our work is supported by The Meliore Foundation.
