The World Trade Organisation (WTO) promotes free trade for the
gain of private interests, over and above our health and the
environment. It is fatally flawed and is moving the world in the
wrong direction - away from peace, security and sustainability. By
stalling on issues that are crucial to poorer countries, the WTO
faces a crisis of legitimacy.
Greenpeace opposes the current form of globalisation that is
increasing corporate power.
We demand that the World Trade Organisation (WTO) adopts a
policy oftrade that truly works for all and that preserves and
We support global environmental standards. Trade must not

development.This means integrating three things: environmental,
social and economicpriorities.
We campaign to bring the concerns of citizens all over the world
to the decision-makers at the WTO.
We are calling on consumers to join
us and demand a GE free world.
