Greenpeace is an independent, nonprofit, global campaigning organization that uses non-violent, creative confrontation to expose global environmental problems and their causes.
Greenpeace’s goal is to ensure the ability of Earth to nurture life in all its diversity.
Greenpeace stands for positive change through action to defend the natural world and promote peace. 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 technological innovation.
Greenpeace's cornerstone principles and core values are reflected in all our environmental campaign work, worldwide. These are:
Positive action: We use creative, non-violent confrontation to raise the level and quality of public debate.
Global: Nature recognises no frontiers or national boundaries. GPEA is part of a global organization. We address cross-border environmental challenges and leverage global intelligence and resources.
Credible: We are a credible organization that deploys independent investigation, research and actions to highlight environmental problems as well as solutions.
Independence: We ensure our financial independence from political or commercial interests. Greenpeace does not solicit or accept funding from governments, corporations or political parties. Greenpeace neither seeks nor accepts donations that could compromise its independence, aims, objectives or integrity. Individual supporters and foundations are our only source of financial support.
