Our mission: Greenpeace is the leading independent campaigning organization that uses peaceful protest and creative communication to expose global environmental problems and promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future.
“We ‘bear witness’ to environmental destruction in a peaceful, non-violent manner. We use non-violent confrontation to raise the level and quality of public debate. In exposing threats to the environment and finding solutions we have no permanent allies or adversaries. We ensure our financial independence from political or commercial interests.” Annie Leonard, Greenpeace USA Executive Director
We fight to put an end to polluting dirty energy projects. We challenge the power of fossil fuel corporations, bolster support for renewable and citizen-powered energy and seek to hold big polluters to account. We also work to stop the flow of money to dirty and destructive coal and nuclear industries.
Fossil fuel companies will fight tooth and nail to keep us locked to the path that gives them a few more years of profit – the path that sends us careening off a cliff. We must fight equally hard – harder – to grab the opportunity to take control of our own destiny. It may be our last chance.
We are the ones we have been waiting for. We are the generation that goes beyond coal and oil.
