Greenpeace, international organisation for environmental protection founded in Vancouver (Canada) in 1971. Greenpeace Austria was established in Vienna in 1983 and currently maintains regional groups in almost all the federal provinces. With a budget of ATS 41.5 million, approximately 40 full-time workers and several hundred voluntary staff (figures for 1994), Greenpeace Austria currently canvasses for restricting CO2 emissions by industry and transport, environment-friendly energy policies, alternatives to the industrial use of chlorine and other halogens, sustainable agriculture and forestry and tries to prevent the construction and operation of nuclear power plants in close proximity to Austrian territory.
