Distinctions

Since 1996, with the support of the government and the masses, we established the first green pilot community, advancing the theory and practice of China's green communities. We united many NGOs to carry out our green activities such as 26 Degrees Air Conditioning or No Car Day and encouraged the development of related public policies. We developed the first domestic NGO Chemical Safety Association Network, increasing public understanding of chemical safety issues.
