October 11, 2018 | New Delhi/ Bengaluru | Certain news reports today say that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has found Greenpeace India to be ‘routing foreign funds’ into the country without permission. Greenpeace India strongly denies such allegations.
There is no truth in the accusation as Greenpeace is wholly funded by local citizens of India.
Every rupee that goes into Greenpeace India’s environmental work is a donation made by ecologically conscious people in the country. Greenpeace India’s work for clean air, promotion of renewable energy, safe food for all and climate change mitigation is carried out with a unique combination of passion and professionalism. We strongly object to attempts of defaming Greenpeace India through false claims and accusations.
This seems to be part of a larger design to muzzle democratic dissent in the country. We do not have anything to hide and are ready to provide the government authorities with financial details as required. At the same time we will reserve the right to constitutionally challenge attempts to malign our very existence as an independent environmental organisation.
