Our Mission

The Institute for Global Decarbonization Progress (iGDP) is a strategic consulting platform focusing on green and low-carbon development with offices in China and Europe. Established in Beijing in 2014, iGDP is dedicated to supporting China’s green and low-carbon practices, contributing to the global effort to address climate change, and providing decision-makers, investors and local communities with forward-thinking solutions.

Through interdisciplinary, systematic, and empirical policy research, iGDP promotes robust energy and climate solutions with high implementation and investment feasibility. iGDP works with its partners to promote a zero emissions future and tell the story of China’s green and low-carbon development.

iGDP brings together a team of research and strategic communication professionals with technical expertise in energy systems, climate policy and environmental economics. iGDP has developed tools and data structures for the tracking and evaluation of low-carbon development practices at home and abroad. Its areas of focus include clean energy, green finance, carbon pricing, urban and regional low-carbon development, agricultural food system sustainability and methane reduction. Research results are applied to a variety of on-the-ground actions, including provincial and urban dual-carbon roadmaps, fair transition, zero-carbon park planning, financial institution stress testing, zero-waste urban planning, and low-carbon actions at the community level.

Climate Change and Energy Transition Program

The Institute of Energy at Peking University launched the Climate Change and Energy Transition Program (CCETP) in March 2021. The Program provides policy recommendations and support to the Chinese government by setting science-based goals and formulating clear roadmaps and effective action plans. It does so to help China address climate change and promote the energy transition to peak its carbon emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.
