Stopping Climate Change

Greenpeace India is campaigning for climate solutions that will help us develop without damaging the planet. By starting an energy revolution that seizes the opportunity for low carbon and sustainable growth while ensuring quality energy access to millions who are denied it currently, we can deliver on development and protect our natural world for current and future generations.

Everyone knows that climate change is real and happening now. What many people don't know is that we have the solutions in our hands. The world needs:

Ø  An energy revolution that lets us quit coal in favour of renewable energy sources like biomass, wind power and solar energy

Ø  Protection for our forests, so they can continue to clean our atmosphere.

Ø  Responsible IT companies who offer climate solutions, and advocate for good environmental laws.
