The Greens – European Free Alliance (Greens – EFA; French: Les Verts – Alliance libre européenne; German: Die Grünen – Freie Europäische Allianz) is one of the parliamentary groups in the European Parliament.[1]

As a group, The Greens-EFA made more gains at the European elections of 2009 than any other group.

This group consists of two distinct European political parties - the European Green Party (EGP) and the European Free Alliance (EFA).[2] The EFA consists of parties representing stateless nations. The alliance has generally limited its membership to progressive parties.[3] These European parties are joined by national parties, such as the Dutch Europe Transparent (between 2004 and 2009) and the Swedish Pirate Party (since 2009).
