Environmental research is supported by international sponsors committed to a collective approach and to intensive interdisciplinary and transnational collaboration. The international science councils for the natural and social sciences, the ICSU and ISSC, as well as the group of national research funding agencies, the Belmont Forum, are all aiming to achieve the same goal with different means: to support environmental and sustainability research and to work together to promote it on a global scale. In collaboration with several other supporters a global alliance was launched - The Science and Technology Alliance for Global Sustainability.

Members of the alliance are various international umbrella organisations, that represent the interests of science, funding agencies and users of knowledge. Members of the Science and Technology Alliance for Global Sustainability are:
