About Greenpeace India:

Greenpeace India has been working on various issues related to the environment since 2001. Our work in India is focused on four broad campaigns namely, stop climate change, sustainable agriculture, preserving the oceans and preventing another nuclear catastrophe. Over the years Greenpeace India has built a strong base of supporters spread across the country.

About Greenpeace:

Greenpeace is a non-profit organisation, with a presence in 40 countries across Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific. To maintain its independence, Greenpeace does not accept donations from governments or corporations but relies on contributions from individual supporters and foundation grants.

Greenpeace exists because the earth and all life on it deserves a clean and safe environment - now and in the future.

As a global organisation, Greenpeace focuses on the most critical worldwide environmental issues such as:-

· Oceans and ancient forests protection;

· Fossil fuel phase out and the promotion of renewable energies to stop climate change;

· Nuclear disarmament and an end to nuclear contamination;

· Elimination of toxic chemicals; and

· Preventing the release of genetically engineered organisms into nature.

Since its earliest days, Greenpeace has been linked to the seas and its ships are incredibly valuable, not only in actions to save the whales and protect the marine environment, but for all campaign work.

Actions often speak louder than words and non-violent direct action is at the heart of Greenpeace campaigns, which have also grown to include lobbying and research over the past years.
