Apr 28, 2021 (China Knowledge) - Li Gao, head of the Department for Addressing Climate Change under China's Ministry of Ecology and Environment, briefed the media yesterday on China's progress in combating climate change.
Li reiterated China’s national goals of peaking carbon dioxide emissions before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060. He further added that the 5th plenary session of the 19th Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, as well as other key meetings had all detailed how the country will achieve these goals and work with the global community to combat climate change.
He also said that the ministry has rolled out several policies and initiatives centred on carbon trading and carbon footprint among others.
As the largest developing country, Li pointed out that China faced a host of problems in achieving climate goals, such as pollution and poverty alleviation. However, he expressed confidence in the country's ability and determination to meet these targets.
He added that since last year the ministry has been synergizing the work of different localities and industries to achieve CO2 emission goals. During the 14th Five-Year Plan period, the ministry will also establish a legal framework concerning these goals.
