Encourage sustainable trade

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.


Freeing people from forced trade

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 restores theenvironment.

We support global environmental standards. Trade must not takepriority. Governments must work to achieve sustainable 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.
