PlanetFear supports people who promote environmental conservation. Wild places are of the utmost importance to us: without them, the adventure sports we love would not exist. The more that wilderness becomes threatened by development and globalisation, there is less chance that future generations will freely explore it as we can. The survival and well-being of the earth’s wild places is critical to us.
PlanetFear endorses the positive environmental policies and work of the following organisations and businesses:

The National Trust (www.nationaltrust.org.uk)
- Nine of the UK's leading environmental groups, including The National Trust, have thrown down the gauntlet to the three main political parties on six critical environmental issues.
Speaking on behalf of the groups, Stephen Hale, Director of Green Alliance, said:
'Although climate change has risen up the political agenda, environmental groups from Greenpeace to the National Trust maintain that the three main parties are still showing little appetite for effective action. The parties must develop policies commensurate with the scale of the challenges facing us in relation to climate change, the countryside and wildlife. The public and business want more from politicians. We hope that all parties will meet The Green Standard'.
