Estonian Green Party

Since the European Parliamentary Elections Political Compass indicated my politics most closely resemble the Estonian Green Party, I had a look at their policies, and it doesn't sound too out of kilter. Its principles are:
– true wealth is expressed by biological and cultural diversity;
– it is good to live in a place blessed with fertile land, potable water and clean air;
– everything related to these issues cannot be indiscriminately exchanged for cash; choices rather than compromises are needed to protect our assets;
– finding a better place does not mean returning to a cave or climbing back up a tree; instead we need intelligent, prompt and meticulously planned action, good education, well-aimed innovation and a thoroughly overhauled economy.
And they also advance ecological balance sheets for companies - including declaring them bankrupt if they don't scratch up on their polluting ways.
