Xie Zhenhua, China’s Special Representative for Climate Change Affairs
China’s target is to achieve carbon peak before 2030, and we are currently in the process of refining the exact year through calculations. However, it can be confidently stated that there is no need to modify this goal. We will present the absolute emissions for achieving the peak. Why is this important? Because in the context of China’s strategic transition from dual control over the amount and intensity of energy consumption to dual control over the amount and intensity of carbon emissions., the absolute quantity is crucial in determining the exact year of peaking. Nevertheless, it is certain that China will peak before 2030, not in 2030.
