Welcome to the Varda Group

The Varda Group is made up of people who have dedicated their lives to protecting the health and well-being of our planet and its inhabitants. After many years of working for international organizations, we established Varda in 2003. We do everything from coordinating campaigns to providing strategic advice and expertise across a wide range of environmental and social issues. Consultancy services are provided by Varda BV (The Netherlands), Varda Desarrollo Sostenible SL (Spain), and Varda Ltd (UK).

The Varda Foundation (Stichting Varda) is a not-for-profit organisation which carries out charitable projects in keeping with our mission and values.

Our mission is to create maximum change for the benefit of people and the planet through:

  • Developing and/or implementing projects which lead toward the improvement of the environment, public health, and social welfare;
  • Capacity building and sharing of expertise with non-governmental organisations;
  • Providing strategic input, analysis and advice to non-governmental organisations, governments, business and/or intergovernmental organisations for the purposes of accelerating positive change.
