China and other nations are poised to make real progress. Here's how we're helping.
China is the world's top emitter of greenhouse gases, and it burns half the world's coal supply each year. By implementing large-scale market-based incentives, China can change course and become a world leader in green energy, while remaining prosperous.
Deforestation causes roughly 15 percent of the world's greenhouse gases. We want to transform the profit motive and make forests more valuable alive than dead. Doing so would be one of the most efficient ways to lower global emissions in a way that protects the livelihoods of indigenous communities.
We're working on ways to lift millions of people in India out of poverty while also addressing climate change and food and energy security. Strategies include cleaner burning cookstoves, clean energies and promoting climate-smart farming techniques.
Our goal is to help the nations of the world and the aviation industry use a policy tool – a well-designed global market-based measure – to help airlines turn away from the path of rising climate pollution.
