About us

Our mission

Greenpeace is an independent campaigning organisation that uses non-violent direct action to expose global environmental problems and to force solutions which are essential to a green and peaceful future.

Greenpeace's goal is to ensure the ability of the earth to nurture life in all its diversity.

Our core values

Independence: we do not accept money from governments, corporations or political parties because it would compromise our core values.

Bearing witness: Our peaceful protests work to raise awareness and bring public opinion to bear on decision-makers.

Non-violent direct action: we strongly believe that violence in any form is morally wrong and accomplishes nothing. Greenpeace takes non-violent direct action at the point of an environmental crime to expose an environmental problem.
