China plans to be carbon neutral by 2060

President of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping announced at the UN General Assembly on September 22 that the country would achieve carbon neutrality by 2060 and peak greenhouse gas emissions in the next decade, Renen reports.

The statement by the President of China is an important and significant event. It further confirms the trajectory of global technological and economic development.

“China will increase its national contribution (in accordance with the Paris Agreement – ed.) by adopting more vigorous policies and measures,” the Chinese president said.

He also added that a "green revolution" was needed to preserve and protect the environment. "The Paris Agreement on Climate Change charts a global course towards green and low-carbon development."

China is the world leader in the development of solar and wind energy, and the formulated position can give an additional impetus to the development of these sectors, not only in China, but also in other countries.

Earlier it was reported that the Chinese coal mining company will produce solar cells.
