The Greens NSW continue to be separate to the other state and territory Greens parties in several regards. The Greens NSW tend to be more left-wing in their political positions in comparison to the other state parties,[5] and continues to maintain the original Greens policy of not having a single parliamentary leader, instead being based on principles of collective leadership.[6]

The party currently sits on the crossbench in the New South Wales Parliament, and has representation federally in the Senate.
