Frederic Hauge founded Bellona in 1986, at the age of twenty. He is still the President of the largest environmental NGO in Norway. Bellona has offices in Oslo, Brussels, St.Petersburg, Murmansk, and Kyiv. Through research, legal action, and non-violent activism, Bellona has changed the opinion and set the agenda on environmental issues in Norway for almost three decades. The work of the Bellona Foundation has led to substantial changes in environmental policy and awareness among political and business leaders, both in Norway and internationally. Hauge was in 2007 elected Vice Chairman of the European Commission's Technology Platform for CO2 sequestration (ZEP). The same year TIME Magazine named him "Hero of The Environment". In 2011 he was asked to be one of the 12 personal advisors to the EU Energy Commissioner Gunther Oettinger on the extensive EU Energy Roadmap 2050. Hauge is widely regarded as one of the architects of the Norwegian electric vehicle revolution, importing the first EV to Norway in 1989.
