Governance and annual accounts

The Environmental Investigation Agency in the UK is formed of two entities.

• Environmental Investigation Agency UK is a registered charity. EIA UK carries out the work set out in agreed annual strategies and employs all staff. Governance of the company is overseen by a board of directors. Operationally, the company is managed by a senior management team.

• Environmental Investigation Agency Trust Ltd is a registered charity and a private company limited by guarantee. The Trust is primarily a fundraising body managed by a Trustee board which grants income to the Environmental Investigation Agency (UK) Ltd to support projects included in approved annual strategies.

There is also EIA (USA) which is a nonprofit charity based in Washington DC. The organisations work on joint funding applications and on some projects but there is no legal connection between them.
