It has been operating in China for nearly 15 years, to help the country create a cleaner and healthier environment, as it deals with challenges and looks to curb global warming. Our reporter, Shen Le, has talked with the founder of the organization's China program, and asked her about the potential of green energy in this country.

Q1: It's a pleasure to have you on the show, Ms. Finamore. How relevant is it to address renewable and sustainable energy sources in this country?

Q2: What's your observation of China's progress, and what are the challenges?
