Our Mission

The mission of Green Cross International is to respond to the combined challenges of security, poverty and environmental degradation to ensure a sustainable and secure future. We seek solutions through dialogue, mediation and co-operation. To achieve this we:

  • Promote legal, ethical and behavioural norms that ensure basic changes in the values, actions and attitudes of government, the private sector and civil society, necessary to develop a sustainable global community;
  • Contribute to the prevention and resolution of conflicts arising from environmental degradation;
  • Provide assistance to people affected by the environmental consequences of wars, conflicts and man made calamities.
