The world’s rising annual emissions of greenhouse gases are causing global average air and sea temperatures to rise, melting ice and snow, and rising sea levels.
In January 2021, the World Meteorological Organization announced that the average global temperature in 2020 will be about 14.9℃, 1.2℃ higher than the pre-industrial level, leaving us little room for temperature rise. If the temperature rise exceeds 2℃, the earth and human beings will face irreversible climate disaster. To mitigate the severe effects of climate change, there are three main paths: Reduce the consumption of fossil fuels, increase the use of renewable energy and improve energy efficiency.
“Carbon neutrality” refers to the total amount of carbon dioxide or greenhouse gas emissions directly or indirectly produced by a country, enterprise or individual within a certain period of time, and the positive and negative offset is achieved through afforestation, energy conservation and emission reduction, etc., so as to achieve relatively “zero emissions”. Emission subjects need to bear the consequences and pay the corresponding costs for their actions, and the carbon pricing mechanism comes into being, which is “carbon trading”.
Although “carbon neutral” was chosen as Oxford Dictionaries’ word of the year in 2006, it was only a flash in the pan. In recent years, “carbon neutral” has remained a very small interest in the international community, at least in China.
And in 2008, Greenpeace was born. Greenpeace is an international non-governmental organization working to promote a greener, peaceful and sustainable world. In order to promote the awareness of environmental protection and further realize the environmental protection of all people, some core members of Greenpeace combine the influence and resources of Greenpeace.
And then the Greenpeace Entrepreneur Foundation (GEF) came into being.
Since its establishment, the Foundation has taken environmental protection as its mission and cooperated with many international environmental organizations, including the Nature Conservancy and the Forest Carbon sequestration project of the International Environmental Protection Fund.
Through extensive contact with international well-known environmental protection groups, enterprises and individuals, to attract people from all walks of life to participate in and support the cause of environmental protection, through various channels and ways to raise funds for environmental protection, for the cause of global environmental protection affected a positive contribution. And help to break the carbon neutral cycle; Carbon neutrality will bring sweeping social changes, and all industries will undergo fundamental changes. This is already on the table.
We can boldly imagine that in GEF, everyone can take practical actions to promote positive change, protect the earth’s environment and become carbon neutral. We can find the significance of individuals to society here. All the advocates of environmental protection can realize their value in GreenPeace. You can receive considerable income to support your green dream!
Social networking, e-commerce, online gaming and other Internet industries will all be transformed by carbon neutrality. The improvement of global environmental awareness requires the efforts of everyone, and GreenPeace will be the first to speak up and promote the common progress of both domestic and international fronts.
