The Green Party Policy site

The Green Party aims to create a just, equitable and sustainable society. We focus our efforts primarily, though not exclusively, through the electoral system.


The Green Party has a short statement of our Core Values, and a longer explanation, called the Philosophical Basis, of the underlying thinking and motives behind our policies.


All our policies are available through this website.

The Record of Policy Statements consists of short term positions and responses to particular current circumstances. These statements do not override the vision contained in the full set of Policies for a Sustainable Society

The Policies for a Sustainable Society (PSS), available through the menu of links on the right of this this page, contains all the policies agreed at successive Green Party conferences, divided into subject chapters. These detailed policies are explained and illustrated from time to time in election manifestos, news releases, topical comment and reports. Both national and local policy objectives are derived from PSS.

PSS is a living and evolving document which goes through a rigorous and democratic approval process - annual conferences of the Party are the supreme policy making body.

The PSS is arranged in chapters of varying length covering different topic areas. Expert speakers are available through the press office to explain the detailed thinking behind the statements in the PSS.

The menu on the right gives access to the individual chapters. There is a site search facility at the top right under the header - results from this are a bit random, and it doesn't link directly to the found word, just to the chapter. We are working on ways to improve this.
