The board of directors is responsible for strategic decisions including approving organisational policy; approving the organisational development plan; and ratifying decisions made at the Greenpeace UK annual general meeting.
The board’s role also includes approval of Greenpeace UK’s annual budget and audited accounts, and the appointment and supervision of Greenpeace UK’s executive director.
UK board directorships are limited to eight years (two terms of four years). The board meets three times in the year and reports to the voting members at the AGM.
Joint executive directors
In August 2022, Areeba Hamid and Will McCallum were appointed as joint executive directors of Greenpeace UK – the first time this role has been held by two people.
