Stop Climate Change

Climate change is of critical concern to China: it is the world's largest greenhouse gas emitter, and many of its people are vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, from glacial melting to droughts and flooding.

Greenpeace is campaigning for climate solutions that will help us prosper without damaging the planet. By switching to renewable energy and protecting our forests, we can protect our world for future generations.

Climate change is real, and it's happening because of human activities – namely burning oil, and coal. We're seeing the effects all around us – extreme weather events, droughts, warmer temperatures, polar ice melting and sea level rising. But we can work to change this.

Solutions to climate change and energy crises already exist: clean, renewable energy, energy efficiency and an end to deforestation. With strong commitment to change from governments, business and individuals alike, we can stop climate chaos.

China is the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases, and any successful efforts to stop global climate change needs this country to play its part. Greenpeace is the leading non-governmental organisation working in East Asia to fight climate change:

  • We are urging China to move away from coal.
  • We are lobbying for China to play a strong leadership role in all international negotiations on climate change.
  • We are pushing for Hong Kong to increase investments in renewable energy and establish strong energy efficiency standards.
  • And we are working with scientists, industry and the government to push China to fulfill its enormous potential for renewable energy.
