The four Greenpeace activists who scaled Parliament House late last month are due to appear in court.

The group's all-day protest against what it says is the Government's lack of action on climate change prompted a review of security at parliament, with questions raised about how they were able to get access to the roof.

The four activists were each charged with one count of trespass, which carries a maximum penalty of three months in prison.

They will make their first appearance in Wellington District Court today.
