For more than 40 years, Greenpeace activists, friends, allies and supporters have worked tirelessly in every corner of the world to create the green and peaceful future our founders envisioned. A world where our oceans teem with flourishing marine life, and where ancient forests stand, and proudly support vibrant and diverse ecosystems. A future where technology evolves in partnership with and with respect for the environment, providing renewable energy, sustainable agricultural resources and clean manufacturing processes.
Since 1971, Greenpeace has dedicated its time, passion and resources to a mission that seeks to expose global environmental problems while ensuring that the Earth is able to nurture life in all its diversity and promote solutions for future generations. It’s a mission we will continue to pursue with tireless determination.
Consider the cost if we don’t.
Today, three quarters of global fish stocks are suffering from overfishing and 90% of top marine predators are already gone. Rising temperatures – urged on by the destruction of tropical rainforests, carbon-capturing peatlands and the burning of fossil fuels – are disrupting world climate patterns, degrading ice shelves on which species like whales and polar bears depend and causing agricultural collapse in some already troubled regions. In the United States, aging nuclear reactors and weak chemical security policies are putting millions needlessly at risk while, in communities across the country, dirty, coal-fired power plants continue to operate without regard for the lives they are destroying.
But you can help us make a difference.
Greenpeace is a force for hope and you can help us shine that light much brighter. We are independent and non-partisan. We do not solicit donations from corporations or governments and rely on individuals to make our work possible.
