Chair of Joint US-China Collaboration on Clean Energy

Peggy Liu has been at the heart of the greening of China over the last decade. As the most visible of China’s environmentalists, she is an informal ambassador of China’s green journey and explainer of how China works. She advises companies and governments on sustainability and cross-cultural collaboration.

Ms Liu is chairperson of the Joint US-China Collaboration on Clean Energy (JUCCCE), a non-governmental organisation accelerating the greening of China for a healthier world.

JUCCCE has led giga-scale change across China in sustainable cities, sustainable consumerism, energy-efficient lighting and smart grid.

Her programmatic focus today, “Food Heroes” play-based education, aims to improve both personal and planetary health.
