Established in 1980, CSE works as a think tank on environment-development issues in India, poor planning, climate shifts devastating India's Sundarbans and advocates for policy changes and better implementation of the already existing policies.

The director of the Centre is Sunita Narain. Under her leadership, Centre for Science and Environment exposed the high level of pesticides present in American brands of soft drinks such as Coke and Pepsi.[2]

In 2018 the CSE was awarded Indira Gandhi Prize for Peace, Disarmament and Development.[3]
