This paper aims to analyze environmental justice in the United Kingdom in light of the achievements of the highly successful environmental justice movement in the United States. The paper describes how the various NGOs and grassroots groups pursuing environmental justice aims in the UK, have shaped their campaigning and methods, in spite of the lack of a civil rights movement upon which to base their work and draw inspiration from. This has forced the UK environmental justice groups to look elsewhere for inspiration and has led to a situation where the connotation of environmental justice is one of diversity and multiplicity. Nevertheless, and in spite of this diversity, the NGOs aspiring to achieve environmental justice in the UK have been successful in forcing the issue of equity and justice into the public debate and political scene in the UK.
