Sustainability Watch: How Green Will China's Future Be? Implications for International Companies
DECEMBER 17, 2020
There is much hope that governments will make the COVID-19 crisis an opportunity to accelerate the global shift towards clean and low-carbon development. Large growth, large emissions’ countries like China matter most. Will China lead the way?
On September 22, China announced that it would be carbon neutral by 2060. But this announcement is not aligned with how COVID-19 infrastructure investment stimulus has been allocated to date. Join us as we unpack the implications of China’s carbon pledge with Lauri Myllyvirta, Lead Analyst at the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air, and Anke Schrader, Research Director at The Conference Board in Asia.
- How “green” are China’s COVID-stimulus measures to date?
- What is the near-term outlook for China’s energy and environment policy?
- What will it take for China to enduringly shift course towards major decarbonization?
- What are the implications for business practice inside and outside of China?
