The Thailand Environment Institute (TEI) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization focusing on environmental issues and the conservation of natural resources in Thailand, on regional and global level.
Founded on the belief that partnerships are the most effective approach in achieving sustainable development and better quality of life, the Thailand Environment Institute advocates a participatory approach to shared environmental responsibility.

By working closely with the private sector, government, local communities, other civil society partners, academia and international organizations, TEI helps to formulate environmental directives and link policy with action to encourage meaningful environmental progress in Thailand.

In this way, and by serving as a reliable and up-to-date information and knowledge resource, TEI works to advance sustainable development in the country, in the Asia-Pacific region, and beyond.
A majority of TEI activities are carried out in the form of projects, covering a wide spectrum of environmental issues, ranging from national policy to grassroots level, and involving both public and private sector partners, as well as local communities.

The large number of research, field action, seminars, workshops, consultancy and training projects, are enabled through the support of our partners and sponsors and their continued commitment to meaningful environmental progress and sustainable development (for listed project information, see on-going and closed projects at
