Green Starters

Overview

The Green Starters funding scheme is dedicated to identifying and supporting startup teams that have the intention to develop into environmental organizations, especially those that are highly mission-driven and focused on environmental issues. It is hoped that the emergence of more promising environmental organisations will promote the healthy and pluralistic development of environmental NGOs and that eventually the goals of conservation, environmental protection and sustainable development will be achieved.

From 2012 when it was first launched to June 2019, the scheme has supported 287 startup or early-stage environmental NGOs with a total funding of more than 28 million yuan (approximately $4 million). These Green Starters are active in 31 provinces and regions in China and working in fields such as conservation, pollution prevention and control, environmental education, waste reduction, and marine conservation, etc.
