China's Carbon Neutrality Journey

As the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases, China has significant work to do before achieving President Xi's groundbreaking national target of peaking carbon emissions by 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2060. Since Xi's announcement in September 2020, stakeholders have sprung into action through both policy and market mechanisms. One notable milestone being the long-anticipated launch of China's national carbon market. China's efforts to decarbonize will be significant not only in their own right but also as an example for countries around the world.
