Adam Teva V’Din is a transformative force in Israel’s environmental law, policies and practices.

National Watchdog: Government officials, lawmakers, local authorities, business stakeholders as well as Israeli communities recognize Adam Teva V’Din as the national environmental watchdog and champion of Israelis’ rights to safe, clean and healthy environment.

Environmental Justice: We have worked with thousands of community activists to bring relief from noise and air pollution and loss of green public spaces. And our pro bono legal and planning guidance has reduced environmental hazards to Arabs in the Galilee and central Israel, Bedouin in the Negev, and Jews from all socio-economic groups and geographic areas. 

Litigation: Our public interest lawsuits have improved air quality and drinking water safety, blocked commercial development on public beaches, and cleaned up putrid rivers. Our appeals to the Supreme Court have secured precedential rulings in core environmental suits.

Legislation: We have authored and promoted most of Israel’s environmental laws in the last 20 years, initiating new regulations and practical approaches to managing solid waste. Our landmark legislative achievements include the Coastline Protection Law (2004), and the pivotal Clean Air Law (2011). Today, our legislative focus is on pushing for a Climate Law for Israel to tackle the challenges of the climate crisis.
