On January 28, the LeidenAsiaCentre organised a webinar on Green Energy and China. You can now watch the recording.
In 2020, President Xi Jinping announced that China aims to hit the peak of its CO2 emissions before 2030, committing to net-zero emissions before 2060. In the coming decade carbon emissions will therefore continue to rise. At the same time, the country invests in renewable green energy, has committed itself to support no more new coal-fired power projects abroad, and tries to increase the environmental sustainability of the BRI with the Belt and Road Initiative International Green Development Coalition (BRIGC). In this Zoom webinar, we will take a look at the way China positions itself internationally when it comes to the green energy sector.
