Climate change isn't inevitable. We have the knowledge, skills and technologies to get ourselves out of this difficult situation. All over the world people have woken up to the threat, and are working to reduce the use of fossil fuels, stop rainforest destruction and get power from clean energy. Still much more needs to be done.

Together we kicked out Shell, 7 million people across the world stopped Shell’s expansion into the Arctic last year. Later in the year nations came together in Paris and signed a historical agreement for the climate. These events are clear signs that the world is entering into a new era, where fossil fuels are placed in a museum, making room for a sustainable future.

A new Greenpeace investigation reveals that fishing fleets that supply major UK and European consumer brands are using giant bottom trawlers in the northern Barents Sea around Svalbard, an area known as the ‘Arctic Galapagos’.

 

A new Greenpeace investigation reveals that fishing fleets that supply major UK and European consumer brands are using giant bottom trawlers in the northern Barents Sea around Svalbard, an area known as the ‘Arctic Galapagos’. The research implicates the suppliers of well-known brands Birdseye, Findus and Young’s, as well as of fish & chips shops across the UK, where around 95% of the cod sold is caught in the Barents Sea or off Iceland (1). Many of these brands proudly display their commitment to sustainability on their packaging.
