Toward a Carbon Neutral and Climate Resilient Future
WRI works with government, private, academic, and non-profit sectors to support national 2030 and 2060 climate and energy targets.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges for human beings in the 21st century. The Paris Agreement proposed that all countries should work together to keep global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees C, and even more aggressively, to limit it within 1.5 degrees C. Chinese government has integrated climate change into national economic and social strategic plans, granting green development as a cornerstone of high-quality economic growth. In September 2020, China announced the new climate pledges to peak CO2 emissions before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.
Through rigorous research, we strive to support China’s energy transition, climate-resilient development, and long-term decarbonization. We provide insights and recommendations to decision-makers in government, private, academic, and non-profit sectors.
The Climate & Energy Program focuses on a number of specific Initiatives. Explore all Resources in depth.
The project aims to accelerate sustainable business ambition and action. We help companies improve their competitive advantage in the transition to the low-carbon economy and achieve sustainable development goals.
