We want to live our lives to the full, while keeping our planet healthy and beautiful so our children can do the same. Revolutionising the way we use and produce energy is not only necessary; it is the safest and easiest way to protect our way of life. It’s time we chose a clean energy future.

Stop climate change

Stop reckless coal developments in the Great Barrier Reef

Greenpeace is speaking out in support of clean energy initiatives around the world by promoting a future that does not rely on fossil fuels for energy.  Read more
