Who Is Greenpeace?
Greenpeace is the leading independent environmental organization that utilizes bold action, cutting-edge research, and creative communications to protect the Earth. We expose global environmental problems and promote the solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future. We investigate, document, and expose environmental destruction in a peaceful manner and promote open, informed debate about society's environmental choices. To ensure our independence we do not accept donations from corporations or governments.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
Greenpeace challenges the systems of power and privilege that destroy the environment and place disproportionate burdens on vulnerable communities. At Greenpeace, we know from nature that diversity is essential to life on the planet and success in our organization. We welcome value and rely on a diversity of people, cultural experiences, and perspectives. We learn from one another. Through our campaigning, we create solutions that promote environmental sustainability rooted in social justice.
