Changhua Wu and Stephen Sackur
In a HardTalk interview first broadcast on Wednesday 26th March, Stephen Sackur talks to Changhua Wu, Greater China director for The Climate Group.
China's impressive economic performance may help to prevent a global slow-down, but how big a toll will it take on the environment?
The government's repeatedly made it clear that it will not curb emissions at the expense of growth.
Changhua Wu is the Greater China Director of The Climate Group, a non-profit organisation dedicated to advancing business and government leadership on climate change.
What kind of action is she pressing for, and how successful can she hope to be?
