  • President Xi Jinping has pledged to cut carbon emissions (per unit of economic output) by 65% by 2030 and set the share of renewables in energy consumption to 25%.
  • While China’s rhetoric is bold, action remains to be seen, China is the world’s largest global polluter.
  • If China’s climate pledge is genuine then it would be a meaningful step toward reducing global emissions.

“Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday pledged to cut carbon emissions per unit of economic output by over 65% by 2030 and boost the share of nonfossil fuels in energy consumption to roughly 25% by then.”
