China launched an environmental campaign to tackle pollution issues on Wednesday, urging people to reduce waste, save water and grow more trees.

The campaign aims to address the environmental damage that has occurred for decades.

Although the report did not specify the target, the campaign is expected to use the same methods implemented by the Communist Party to change individuals’ behavior, rather than imposing penalties on companies as previously practiced.

However, the campaign sets a target by 2022, more than 60 per cent of households is expected to undertake various saving the earth activities such as planting trees, protecting wildlife and reducing waste disposal.

The Communist Party and government departments need to meet recycling requirements, buy new energy vehicles, establish paperless offices, while schools hope to create a green campus to tackle pollution issue.

The campaign aimed achieve conducive environment for green living, while shopping malls will be encouraged to reduce waste materials.

China is currently reported to be the world’s largest producer of greenhouse gases, a source of global warming.

It forced the country to wage war on pollution and modernize its heavy industry, in an effort to reduce emissions, thus cleaning the environment.
