In Sept 2020, China announced its target to reach peak carbon emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality (net zero) by 2060. China is the biggest CO2 emission country, accounting for 28% of the world’s total emission (although in terms of per capita emission, China ranked 47th). To reduce all this emission while maintaining a high growth rate is a task of tremendous magnitude. In addition, China leaves only 30 years to drop the emission from peak to zero while most developed economies would be 40-60 years, which means much more dramatic changes in policy and technology adoption.
All this will lead to exciting investment opportunities! ATC Sustainable Investment, a new program by ATC Initiative, will capture the various sustainable investment themes in China through our researches, interviews and our Green-Connecting project.
