Greenpeace is a non-profit organisation, with a presence in 40 countries across Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific. As a global organisation, Greenpeace focuses on the most critical worldwide environmental issues such as: Oceans and ancient forests protection, Fossil fuel phase out and the promotion of renewable energies to stop climate change; Nuclear disarmament and an end to nuclear contamination; Elimination of toxic chemicals; and Preventing the release of genetically engineered organisms into nature.
Greenpeace exists because the earth and all life on it deserves a clean and safe environment - now and in the future.
Since its earliest days, Greenpeace has been linked to the seas and its ships are incredibly valuable, not only in actions to save the whales and protect the marine environment, but for all campaign work.
Actions often speak louder than words and non-violent direct action is at the heart of Greenpeace campaigns, which have also grown to include lobbying and research over the past years.
