FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nov 2, 2021 2:00 PM GMT: Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation, with 55 years of experience in Humanitarian Aid and Assistance, has witnessed first-hand a worsening trend of tropical storms, droughts, famines, floods, and other climate-related disasters. At 1.2 C above preindustrial age, the devastating effects of climate change are very real, and each year grows worse and worse.
In recognition of the crisis we face, Tzu Chi shares a faith-based approach to missions of Charity, Medicine, Education, and Humanistic Culture in addressing the climate crisis and commits to a pathway to carbon neutrality by 2050.
