Small business has big role in fighting for climate goals

Asian governments can spur change with smart policies on emissions and waste

Recycling rare metals from old mobile phones is an environmentally friendly opportunity for small businesses.

It has been dubbed the "Uber for trucks." The e-logistics company Huochebang in China has developed an online platform that coordinates truckers, shippers and service centers. By the end of last year, the company was working with 2.3 million truckers and 350,000 shippers in more than 360 Chinese cities.

The business startup stands as a great example of innovation that is helping alleviate global carbon emissions. Its service reduces empty miles and waiting times between loads, making shipping more environmentally friendly.
