About Greenpeace

Greenpeace, one of the world’s most respected and dynamic organizations, is an international non-profit global campaign based organization that acts to ensure the ability of the Earth to nurture life in all its diversity. At the heart of Greenpeace’s campaigns is the tradition of non-violent, direct action against environmental abuse and destruction.

Greenpeace exists because this fragile earth deserves a voice. It needs solutions. It needs change. It needs action.

Greenpeace acts to change attitudes and behaviors, to protect and conserve the environment and to promote peace by:

  • Catalyzing an energy revolution to address the number one threat facing our planet: climate change.
  • Defending our oceans by challenging wasteful and destructive fishing, and creating a global network of marine reserves.
  • Protecting the world’s ancient forests and the animals, plants and people that depend on them.
  • Creating a toxic free future with safer alternatives to hazardous chemicals in today’s products and manufacturing.
  • Campaigning for sustainable agriculture by rejecting genetically engineered organisms, protecting biodiversity and encouraging socially responsible farming.

Greenpeace is present in 40 countries across Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa and the Pacific.

To maintain its’ independence, Greenpeace does not accept donations from governments or corporations but relies on contributions from individual supporters and foundation grants.

For over 40 years, Greenpeace has been successful in its campaigns to reverse environmental degradation by bearing witness to environmental destruction and exposing and confronting environmental abuse. Greenpeace campaigns have been vital in informing government policies on the environment and effecting changes in business practices which helped to prevent numerous environmental problems.

Greenpeace opened its first office in Southeast Asia in 2000. Since that time we have led successful campaigns throughout the region, securing fresher air, cleaner water and a healthier environment through changing industry practices and government policies. 

Greenpeace Southeast Asia employs more than 170 staff, all dedicated to meeting the professional standards expected of the world’s leading campaigning organization for the environment.
