Greenpeace has won two major lobbying campaigns.

o They persuaded LEGO not to renew its contract with Arctic oil driller Shell whereby LEGO toys were given away at Shell petrol stations in more than 30 countries, and LEGO sold toy brick sets in the shape of petrol stations and drilling rigs with Shell logos on.

The tie-up was seen as a way for Shell to whitewash its image, both with parents and children and has been running for 50 years.


o The chief scientific adviser to the European Commission, Professor Anne Glover has been dropped after Greenpeace and other groups objected to her support for the growing of GM crops.

According to Glover, who held a position of considerable influence, opposing GM crops was “a form of madness”
