The Australians Greens have reaffirmed Victorian senator Richard Di Natale as leader of the party.

The Greens party room met on Wednesday and following the customary spill of the leadership positions returned Senator Di Natale as leader, and Queensland senator Larissa Waters and Melbourne MP Adam Bandt as deputy leaders.

WA senator Rachel Siewert continues as party whip and Victorian senator Janet Rice is party room chair.

"I am so proud of our achievements and the strong role the Greens have played in shaping the debate of the 45th parliament, and I am confident that we will once again be a driving force in responding to the major challenges that confront our nation," Senator Di Natale said in a statement.

The Greens' key agenda items will be climate action, transforming the economy towards renewable energy and dealing with the rising cost of living, job insecurity and inequality.
