CGTN published this video item, entitled “China’s Green Efforts: Big data to help formulate carbon neutrality strategy” – below is their description.
As economies grow and people’s lifestyles change, they contribute to rising greenhouse gas emissions which causes global warming. No wonder global carbon dioxide emission was about 34 billion tonnes in 2020. China accounts for 27 percent of the global emissions. Now, the country is on track to deliver on the commitment of peaking its carbon emissions by 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2060. While the world’s watching China’s strategy to achieve its climate goals, it is crucial to find reliable data in drawing up an action plan. The key is to know who are the key emitters, how much greenhouse gases they emit, and then formulate policies to curb the use of fossil fuels.
Tian Wei takes you on a journey to find real answers: who’s gathering the data and what the numbers mean. Ma Jun is an insider. He is the director of the Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs. The institute collects, collates and analyzes raw information to build an environmental database, including carbon emissions of different places and enterprises in China.CGTN YouTube Channel
