Greenpeace exists because this fragile Earth deserves a voice. It needs solutions. It needs change. It needs action!

Our climate and energy campaign has three main goals:

  1. To ensure China takes a leading role in international climate negotiations.
  2. To lobby China to move away from coal and to invest heavily in renewable energy and energy efficiency.
  3. To push for the Hong Kong SAR government to invest in energy efficiency and renewable energy, instead of in nuclear power, which is expensive, unsafe and polluting.
  4. To get the Mainland China and Hong Kong public to take personal action and support government action on climate change.

How are we doing this?

  • We work with Chinese academics to publish research and policy recommendations so that our demands are backed up by hard science and economics.
  • We are pushing for China to quit coal. We investigate and document the multiple impacts that coal has on society, from climate change to air and water pollution to health damage.
  • We educate and encourage the Hong Kong and Chinese public to support actions to stop climate change.
  • We document the effects of climate change in China to help our public and government campaigns.
  • We lobby the Hong Kong government and businesses to adopt energy efficiency measures and renewable energy
