Near-Zero Carbon Zones in China

After the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, China committed to peak emissions around 2030. Cities are identified as one of the most effective levers to achieve such a reduction goal, as they account for 60% of CO2 emissions in China.

To support cities to peak carbon emissions, the central government of China established a national program that calls for 50 near-zero carbon zones by 2050. Cities and regions are looking for technical supports to design and implement near-zero carbon zones that can meet the carbon reduction goal while supporting economic growth.
