Bengaluru Environment Trust has taken up issues of public interest, especially environmental issues of lake restoration, urban tree protection, afforestation, pollution prevention, water rights and pollution related livelihood issues over the last 30 years.

- BET works with people’s participation on all its campaigns for localised ecological health.
- Operates through a multidisciplinary network of citizens, gained through years of experience
