Environmental Justice Organisations (EJOs) are civil society groups involved in conflicts over resource extraction or waste disposal, which increase as the world economy uses more materials and energy.

This new term has been stamped by the current of Ecological economics.

Costs of economic growth and development are disproportionately borne by the most socially and economically vulnerable sections of society, who often lack the political power to resist displacement, dispossession or exposure to environmental health risks. By giving these people a voice, EJOs practice what can be called "environmentalism of the poor".
