Abstract Environmental organisations have key contributions to make in addressing global environmental degradation and fostering socially and ecologically sustainable societies. However, knowledge about the diverse ways that they contribute to these processes is under-developed. This article investigates the goal orientations and outcomes of 303 community and government sector environmental organisations within South-East Queensland, Australia. Organisations reported a broad range of outcomes including conservation, institution change, knowledge transfer, organisational development and socio-cultural change. There was evidence of substantial difficulties and challenges in their work to modify social institutions, and overlap and blurring between community and government sectors. These findings have implications for harnessing synergistic and diverse organisational resources in ways that best promote environmental care across social institutions, settings and populations.
