Greenpeace Int. Publishes Annual Accounts

Greenpeace Int. Publishes Annual Accounts

Greenpeace today published its combined annual summary of income and supporter accounts for 2003, which show a consistent increase in supporter figures and a stable income for the international environmental organisation. The records show a steady increase in Greenpeace supporters, with offices in India and Southeast Asia particularly continuing to show a rise in membership.

Greenpeace supporters overall increased by approximately 60,000, to almost 2.9 million supporters world-wide. Greenpeace India now counts over 9,000 supporters-an increase of 80% over the previous years' figures. Southeast Asia also has over 9,000 supporters, which represent an increase of over 500%.

Greenpeace entities reported a combined gross global income of €163 million-- a slight decrease compared to 2002. This decline in income is a reflection of the fluctuating currency rates around the world and the strengthening of the Euro against other currencies. (1)

"While there continues to be no establishment authority to whom to turn in the face of environmental crises, people around the world continue to have faith in the work championed by organisations such as Greenpeace," said Dr. Gerd Leipold, executive director of Greenpeace International.

"This is especially true for developing regions, such as India and Southeast Asia, facing the imminent destruction of their natural resources. These regions are rapidly waking up to the fact that together we can make a difference," concluded Leipold.

Full details of the report can be found at:

Notes to Editors:
The combined annual income results are presented in Euros, while the accounts of each separate Greenpeace office are maintained in their local currency. If the same exchange rates had prevailed at the end of 2003 as at the end of 2002, then the total combined Greenpeace worldwide income expressed in Euros would have been higher than in 2002. The strengthening of the Euro, particularly against the US$ and the British pound, has resulted in the total income expressed in Euros being lower than in the previous year.
