Abstract: This sociological study analyses European environmental non-governmental organizations (ENGOs) in terms of political ideologies and strategies, in relation to climate change policies, and within a social policy context. This study makes use of qualitative methodology that employs discourse analysis to a sample of press releases released by ENGOs forming the Green I 0 (G 1 0) - this being the transnational entity that brings together ten of the largest and most influential ENGOs in the European Union (EU) (Green 10 n.d.). Furthermore, sampled press releases are related to the four main target areas of the 2009 Copenhagen Deal endorsed by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
