Warning! LobbyFacts is temporarily only showing data up to 19 September 2021. This is because from 20 September, the EU lobby register changed format and the register's secretariat is no longer providing complete and reliable daily data updates which LobbyFacts uses to keep up to date. This temporary problem has not affected LobbyFacts' archive facility, but for today's lobby data, please check the original EU lobby register. We hope the secretariat will remedy this soon, enabling us to launch a new improved and faster version of LobbyFacts.

Goals / Remit

Greenpeace is a global non-profit organisation that uses non-violent direct action to tackle the biggest threats to our environment. Greenpeace aims to protect and conserve nature and to promote peace by investigating, exposing and confronting environmental abuse, challenging the political and economic powers that can effect change, driving economically responsible and socially just solutions that offer hope for current and future generations, and inspire people to take responsibility for the planet. Greenpeace speaks for c.3 million (March 2021 figure) supporters worldwide.
Based in Brussels, Greenpeace European Unit monitors the work of the EU institutions, exposes deficient EU laws, challenges EU decision-makers to act responsibly in the public interest and confronts industry lobbies that undermine environmental protection in the pursuit of their private interests.
