CAE launches study on China’s carbon peaking and neutrality
The Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE) launched a key research on the strategy and roadmap of China’s carbon peaking and neutrality on February 3, 2021.
The program was initiated to support China’s pledge to peak carbon emissions by 2030 and reach carbon neutrality by 2060, made by President Xi Jinping at the 75th General Assembly of the United Nations in September last year.
The two goals show China’s determination and ambition to deal with climate change with more active, solid and powerful measures.
The research project will study major issues step-by-step and examine specific needs for the goals in various fields to provide scientific support for decision-making by the State Council.
The inaugural meeting heard research plans by project groups, while participating CAE members and experts also discussed and put forward their opinions and suggestions.
