Australia and the Pacific are unique and precious environments. We’re lucky to call them home. We’ve got a beautiful climate, rich oceans, vast forests and healthy food. Yet all of this is under threat. Greenpeace takes action to protect our natural home, now and for the future.
The Pacific demonstrates global climate leadership from the frontlines of the climate crisis, lighting the path to survival through solutions, including the campaign for an International Court of Justice advisory opinion on climate change to the decades-long fight for loss and damage funding.
Climate change is the defining issue of our generation. And our choice is clear: do we keep burning coal, pumping carbon pollution into the atmosphere, killing hundreds of thousands of people each year and signing the death warrant for the planet?
Every second breath we take comes from the ocean. Healthy oceans are the life support system for our planet, providing 97 percent of the Earth’s liveable habitat and a home to more than 700,000 different species of life.
Deep sea mining would have devastating impacts to oceans, marine life and people all over the world. The Australian government has a vital role to play. We need them to show leadership and join others in calling for a global moratoriumban on deep sea mining.
With the vast majority of the world’s forests already destroyed or degraded, Greenpeace is deeply committed to protecting what is left. Our experience of years working in the biggest forest regions of the world has positioned us well to push for the ambitious targets required to deliver forest protection at the speed and scale needed.
Single-use plastic is harmful to human health, perpetuates social injustice, destroys our biodiversity and fuels the climate crisis. We demand that governments commit to a strong Global Plastics Treaty that will stop runaway plastic production and use and ultimately end the age of plastic.
