Awards for Chinese “Climate solvers”
The first winners of WWF's Climate Solver Awardsin China included a highly energy- efficient battery charger, making electric cars more viable, and more environmentally-sustainable refrigeration systems. Announced in Beijing in December, the awards profile products that achieve three aims: they are innovative, meet a market need and help reduce society’s carbon emissions. The awards aim to recognise products that are needed and can be produced at scale, with new technology to ensure the reduction in carbon emissions can become significant. WWF runs Climate Solvers in several countries, expanding to China as this is a major carbon emitting country with a will to change – where Climate Solvers can have the greatest impact.
