Description

Pure Earth, formerly known as the Blacksmith Institute, is a leader in global toxic pollution cleanup. Since its inception in 1999, Pure Earth has completed 110 environmental remediation projects in 27 countries, improving the lives of millions of people, especially children, who are most at risk from the threat of toxic pollution.

Based in New York, Pure Earth works cooperatively around the world in partnerships that include governments, the international community, NGOs and local agencies, to design and implement innovative, low-cost solutions to save lives.

In 2008, Pure Earth began efforts to create a global alliance to support the cleanup and elimination of legacy pollution in the developing world. The Global Alliance on Health and Pollution (GAHP) was formed in 2011 with Pure Earth serving as Secretariat. The GAHP is the first effort of its kind dedicated to addressing the threat of toxic pollution on a global scale.
