About the Leave it in the Ground Initiative (LINGO)

We work on one of the key fronts for stopping run-away climate change: keeping fossil fuels in the ground and transitioning to a 100% clean energy world. We aim for ending fossil fuel burning in years, not decades and develop high-impact, game-changing initiatives around coal, oil and gas extraction, in defense of a healthy planet.
