ClientEarth work in the UK, in Europe and across the globe with governments, green groups and others to ensure environmentally sound laws are written, that poor ones are challenged and changed and, once they have been established, that environmental laws are properly enforced.
Said the band: “Client Earth is at the forefront of changing the way the planet’s resources are governed. They have a positive and pragmatic approach to environmental issues, improving and enforcing environmental law. Coldplay are proud to support them.”
The band’s creative director and fifth member Phil Harvey is one of ClientEarth’s trustees. The band join the producer of their last album Brian Eno, as well as the MP and former editor of the Ecologist Zac Goldsmith, as patrons of the organisation.
James Thornton, ClientEarth’s CEO, welcomed Coldplay as patrons, saying: “To have one of the world’s most successful groups supporting our work is absolutely fantastic. Coldplay have long been strong advocates for environmental issues, and we are extremely pleased that they will continue to speak out for these most important of issues alongside us.”
