The Public Trust Project (PTP) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that investigates and reports on the manipulation of scientific research by corporations and government, and promotes the findings of independent scientists whose work has not been skewed by powerful interests. We take on campaigns relating to public health, occupational safety, and environmental protection. Using strategic communications, investigation, and multi-media projects, we seek to hold corporations and government accountable.
- Create a bridge between the academic science community and the public
- Promote industry-independent research conclusions as a counterpoint to corporate research, and independent scientists as the legitimate custodians of dispassionate, critical analysis
- Inform the public about the ways in which private interests develop products that contribute to illness, injury, and environmental degradation
- Provide examples to illustrate the difference between corporate science and independent science
