When you walk through the office door, you may encounter a lively group of colleagues catching up as they get their daily fill of coffee or tea. Others may be meeting in person or virtually via video conference, Skype or other ways of communicating with colleagues and stakeholders across the globe.
Most of your colleagues will wear jeans and sneakers rather than a suit – there is no dress code. Greenpeacers work hard, because we are passionate about changing the power dynamics and global mindsets while maintaining the global environmental boundaries.
Our team aims to work according to our core principles and the global diversity and inclusion principles*. Our organisation is working hard to become more diverse and inclusive**, but there is still a lot of work to be done and we hope that you will help us. So when you come in, don’t be afraid of being your authentic self – rather be proud and be bold!

What Diversity Means to Us
**Diversity (includes, but is not limited to) age, gender, marital or civil partnership status, disability, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, socioeconomic status, pregnancy or maternity, or sexual orientation.
Embracing diversity means that we want to celebrate celebrating the similarities and differences that makes each person unique. Inclusion is the means by which we put diversity in action, for example, the policies, procedures, and practices that an organisation puts in place to create inclusive organisational culture.
Greenpeace International Code of Conduct
We have a code of conduct that sets out common basic principles, standards and rules, and instructs us on acceptable and unacceptable conduct. This applies in full to Greenpeace International staff based in Amsterdam. Our National/Regional Greenpeace Organisations also have codes of conduct that might differ slightly from this one. Please see below to find out more about our Code of Conduct.
