The Global CCS Institute welcomes China’s latest climate commitment, pledging to become carbon neutral by 2060.
The announcement was made by China's President, Xi Jinping, during an address to the UN General Assembly, where the Paris Agreement was noted as a key document for jurisdictions to honour if a successful transition to a low carbon economy is to be made.
While China has yet to release details around the 2060 pledge, President Xi Jinping says enhanced policy measures will be part of the equation.
In a newly released report co-authored by the Global CCS Institute, findings show that rapid deployment of both policy and climate technology will need to occur within the next 10 years to reach mid-century global climate targets and get to climate neutrality. With governments and industry adopting carbon neutral commitments now more than ever, the Institute looks forward to seeing significant progress in the just transition to a low carbon future.
