What does Greenpeace stand for?

Greenpeace stands for positive change through action. We defend the natural world and promote peace.

As a global organisation, Greenpeace focuses on the most crucial worldwide threats to our planet's biodiversity and environment.

We investigate, expose and confront environmental abuse by governments and corporations around the world.

We champion environmentally responsible and socially just solutions, including scientific and technical innovation.

We promote open, informed debate about society's environmental choices.

We use high-profile, non-violent direct action, research, lobbying, and quiet diplomacy to pursue our goals and raise the level and quality of public debate as the catalyst for change.
