Objectives

We defend the natural world and promote peace by investigating, exposing and confronting environmental abuse, and championing responsible solutions for our fragile environment.

Activities

Stop climate change

Climate change isn't inevitable. We have the knowledge, skills and technologies to get ourselves out of this difficult situation. All over the world people have woken up to the threat, and are working to reduce the use of fossil fuels, stop rainforest destruction and get power from clean energy.

Defend oceans

Our beautiful oceans are home to a staggering 80% of life on Earth. But destructive fishing, pollution and climate change are damaging them on a scale unimaginable to most people, and our campaign work focuses on reversing these destructive trends.

Protect forests

The Earth's ecologically diverse ancient forests are vital in regulating our climate. 80% of them have been destroyed or degraded, with the rest under growing threat. Our campaign opposes destructive logging and supports the rights of indigenous peoples and species that depend on these forests.

Our global campaigns

Greenpeace campaigns globally for a greener and more peaceful world, including for a GM-free-future and the elimination of toxic chemicals.
