Mapping the environmental third sector in England: a distinctive field of activity?
The third sector has a long history of environmental action and yet we lack systematic knowledge of the size, scope and activities of third sector organisations with an environmental mission. To address this gap, we analyse data from two databases - the Charity Commission's Register of Charities and the National Survey of Third Sector Organisations - to provide the first systematic analysis of registered environmental third sector organisations in England. As well as providing much-needed data on different aspects of the environmental organisations, the article draws comparisons with the rest of the third sector, offering insights into the distinctive characteristics of environmental activity. In undertaking this analysis, we highlight the methodological challenges of using these data sources to analyse any subsector or industry of the third sector in England.

Abstract

The third sector has a long history of environmental action and yet we lack systematic knowledge of the size, scope and activities of third sector organisations with an environmental mission. To address this gap, we analyse data from two databases - the Charity Commission's Register of Charities and the National Survey of Third Sector Organisations - to provide the first systematic analysis of registered environmental third sector organisations in England. As well as providing much-needed data on different aspects of the environmental organisations, the article draws comparisons with the rest of the third sector, offering insights into the distinctive characteristics of environmental activity. In undertaking this analysis, we highlight the methodological challenges of using these data sources to analyse any subsector or industry of the third sector in England.
