Each office can decide how to archive content that did not get migrated to Planet 4. Greenpeace International, however, did a full backup of all sites and made their content available via both P4 integration and external sources.

Greenpeace content represents our history, how we have become the world’s largest environmental organization.

Where to find archived content

Greenpeace P3 sites

Each P3 website has been crawled in the Internet Archive. This static HTML collection of sites represents the main Archive of Greenpeace content since we started publishing on the web.

Greenpeace Archive Collection

All P3 Documents G-Drive

All pdf, xls, xlsx, doc, docx, ppt and pptx ever uploaded on our websites have been extracted into a Google Drive, split by file type and year. A Greenpeace Google ID is required to access the folder.

The Greenpeace Media Library (fully integrated with Planet 4) remains the best place to access, browse and get the amazing visual history of Greenpeace.

Why archiving?

Once completed the content audit, it’s clear what content needs to be migrated to P4 or archived.

The content non migrated to P4 must remain available for everyone to access for ever. This way Greenpeace has a new, clean and light website, without loosing its institutional, historical content.

Archived content can not be edited and should not be actively pushed to the public. It represents our legacy, not a tool to actively campaign.

1 – Each Planet 3 site has been crawled 3 times by the Internet Archive.
