Acc to its website To maintain absolute independence Greenpeace does not accept money from companies, governments or political parties.and depends on the donations of supporters to carry on
According to“The Guardian ” the handling of Greenpeace International’s £58m budget has been in disarray for years, with its financial team beset by personnel problems and a lack of rigorous processes, leading to errors, substandard work and a souring of relationships between its Amsterdam headquarters and offices around the world, documents leaked to the Guardian show. Coming after it emerged that a staffer had lost £3m on the foreign exchange market by betting mistakenly on a weak euro, the documents show that the group’s financial department has faced a series of problems, and that its board is troubled by the lack of controls and lapses that allowed one person to lose so much money.
The CEO of the Group is a Rhodes Scholar from South Africa Kumi Naidoo One of the important instruments Cecil Rhodes created to implement his breathtaking global “vision” was the Rhodes Scholarships, through which (said Stead) he intended his network would help into influential positions thousands of “men in the prime of life scattered all over the world, each one of whom, moreover, would have been specifically — mathematically — selected toward the Founder’s purposes.” And what qualities would be demanded of these men? According to Rhodes:“smugness, brutality, unctuous rectitude, and tact.” Source

For a group that claims no Govt agency the fact remains their Chairman is a member of Ford Foundation . There are declassified documents which show some links between Ford Foundation and the CIA .Given their reach and networking the group has tremendous PR value and can immediately give bad press to any project or business For example they oppose the cruelty in whaling but are silent about the cruelty in Kosher slaughter
