On September 22, 2020, President Xi Jinping announced at the 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly that China will strive to become carbon neutral by 2060. Carbon neutrality means achieving net zero carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions by removing (often through carbon offsets) the same level of emissions that are emitted, or simply eliminating CO₂ emissions altogether. A more ambitious goal than carbon neutrality is to achieve zero carbon emissions, but a national goal of carbon neutrality would already imply that most players within the economic system achieve zero carbon. The announcement of China's carbon neutrality establishes a direction for realizing a "Zero-carbon China" and will greatly support the drive toward carbon pricing and green, sustainable, and high-quality development. This talk will cover the background of carbon trading and carbon pricing, China’s carbon trading revolution and how carbon neutrality goal will activate the market and encourage more long-term value investors to focus on low/zero-carbon development and invest in low/zero-carbon assets, projects, and technologies.
