Greenpeace is one of the first environmental organizations in the world to sound the alarm on global warming and climate change in the mid-1980s. Since then, we have been proactively engaging on the issue by bearing witness at, and directing public attention to, climate impact hotspots. We have confronted companies and institutions which contribute the most to climate change, and promoted solutions to prevent climate change, such as the massive shift to clean energy sources as outlined in our Energy [R]evolution report. Climate change is recognized as the greatest threat facing our planet today and is the most important environmental issue on Greenpeace’s global agenda.
Our Climate and Energy campaign in Southeast Asia is working to catalyze an Energy Revolution in the way we produce, distribute, and use energy by being at the forefront of climate change solutions. We are working to promote the massive uptake of renewable energy in the region and to stop further reliance on climate changeinducing fossil fuels such as coal, and false and unsafe alternatives such as nuclear power.
