Greenpeace doesn’t play party politics but we don’t stay quiet when it comes to holding political (or corporate) leaders to account. Our number one priority is protecting our natural environment, the foundation of a healthy life for all. That means stopping plastic going into our oceans and killing marine life. It means ending air pollution impacting our children’s health. It means dealing with climate change by investing in clean, renewable energy. It means ending the destruction of rainforests and other important ecosystems that all life depends on for its survival.
