We believe optimism is a form of courage. We believe that a billion acts of courage can spark a brighter tomorrow. To that end we model courage, we champion courage, we share stories of courageous acts by our supporters and allies. We invite people out of their comfort zones to take courageous action with us, individually in their daily lives, and in community with others who share our commitment to a better world. A green and peaceful future is our quest. The heroes of our story are all of us who believe that a better world is not only within reach, but being built today.
We believe that a better world is not only possible, but that it's already beginning. Thanks to thousands of committed individuals around the world, a greener and more peaceful future is in our sights.

Personal responsibility and nonviolence: We take action based on conscience. This means we are accountable for our actions and take personal responsibility.
We are committed to peacefulness: In everything we do, we aspire to do peaceful. we want to be kind to our planet and kind to each other. When Greenpeace do actions as part of protest, we endorse non-violence.
Independence: We do not accept money from governments, corporations or political parties. Individual contributions, together with foundations grants, are the only source of our funding.
Greenpeace has no permanent friends or foes: If your government or company is willing to change, we will work with you to achieve your aims. Reverse course, and we will be back. What matters isn’t words, but actions.
Promoting solutions: It’s not enough for us to point the finger; we develop, research and promote concrete steps towards a green and peaceful future for all of us.
