Giving the fact that climate change is a global challenge that requires efforts integrated from all over the world, we follow the climate negotiations and write observation articles, conduct independent research, promote cross-sector dialogue and public diplomacy. We provide suggestions on global climate governance and China’s solutions from a civil society perspective.
As one of the first local environmental organizations engaging in the climate governance, we conduct independent research, track UNFCCC processes and organize cross-sectoral dialogue; we promote strategic climate communication to raise public awareness and foster discussions on environmental, social and health benefits.
Under “Going out” strategy, Chinese enterprises actively explore and develop overseas business which in turn promotes China’s economic development and employment. However, we also found that because enterprises lack of understanding on social and environmental regulations and cultures of target regions or countries, and required communication and information disclosure are not sufficient, as a result, some investment projects were postponed due to adverse environmental effect , and enterprises also suffer economic and reputation losses.
China should abandon the past extensive development model, invest responsibly and narrow ecological footprints in the world, and lead the global green economy transformation. Since 2013, we regularly issue” Observation on China Overseas Investment” focusing on China’s” going out ” and the global ecological issues, showing diverse views, identifying real problems and solving them.
