This year marks the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement, and the international community is concentrating on effectively addressing climate change.
As one of the important driving forces of the Paris Agreement, China has always adhered to multilateralism and written a chapter of cooperation to address climate change with practical actions.
Referring to China’s contribution in addressing climate change, Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, said, “China’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions have been increasingly recognized, and even become a leading country in the field of clean energy, able to work with the world.
China shares its excellent experience, and I am also very grateful to China’s leadership. They have a clear goal and vision to put sustainable development and climate change at the core of future development.
At the general debate of the 75th session of the General Assembly this year, China also announced that it will strive to peak carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and strive to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.
In addition, Amina, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, said that China’s commitment to increase national independent contributions and strive to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060 not only lays a solid foundation for the global implementation of the Paris Agreement, but also demonstrates China’s consistent support for multilateralism.
