What we do: The issues we work on
Greenpeace exists because this fragile Earth deserves a voice. It needs solutions. It needs change. It needs action!
Stop climate change
With the world on the brink of runaway climate change, it is time to get serious. We''re calling upon governments and industry to step up and make big improvements. And there''s a lot you can do to help.
Forests are home to about two-thirds of the world''s land-based species of plants and animals. They keep the climate stable and maintain the balance of life on Earth. Their destruction produces about one fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions.
Defending our oceans
Seen from space the Earth is covered in a blue mantle. It is a planet on which the continents are dwarfed by the oceans surrounding them and the immensity of the marine realm.
Greenpeace is campaigning for agriculture that is good for the planet and people. Healthy food grown with the environment- not against it. Farming that helps farmers to cope with climate change.
Eliminate toxic chemicals
Toxic chemicals in our environment threaten our rivers and lakes, our air, land, and oceans, and ultimately ourselves and our future.
End the nuclear age
Greenpeace has always fought - and will continue to fight - vigorously against nuclear power because it is an unacceptable risk to the environment and to humanity. The only solution is to halt the expansion of all nuclear power, and for the shutdown of existing plants.
