Think tank

The Bellona Foundation is an international environmental NGO based in Norway. Founded in 1986 as a direct action protest group, Bellona has become a recognised technology and solution-oriented organization with offices in Oslo, Brussels, Washington D.C., St. Petersburg and Murmansk. Altogether, some 75 engineers, ecologists, nuclear physicists, economists, lawyers, political scientists and journalists work at Bellona. Bellona endeavours to identify and implement sustainable solutions to the world's most pressing environmental problems. These include the fight against global climate change, the environmental impact of the oil and gas industry in Europe and Russia and the cleanup after the legacy of the Cold War in Russia. Bellona strives to be a bridge builder between industry and policy makers, working closely with the former to help them respond to environmental challenges in their fields, and proposing policy measures that promote new technologies with the least impact on the environment.
