When the new EU law was announced, we considered the cost of recoding our content management system and website to make cookies optional. However, their use is so deeply ingrained, and so distributed across different language and national content sites, that this would have been an extremely expensive prospect. As our website’s primary mission is to inspire, engage, and mobilize, we came to the conclusion that investing in a cookie-free, information only experience simply wouldn’t be the best use of our supporter’s money. We decided to bias toward the convenience of the our regular visitors, and makecookies mandatory for visits to the site.
We do publish information regularly via a number of social media sites listed in our Privacy & Cookies policy page, and there is a workaround for people who would like to view our news content cookie-free: that’s to subscribe to our RSS feed through your favorite feed reader. The URL is http://feeds.feedburner.com/GreenpeaceNews
We’re really sorry that we can’t offer a cookie-free experience on our website, and can only hope that you understand the choice we had to make.
