China Announces Significant Climate Commitment, Climate Group Responds

In response to the climate announcement today by Chinese President Xi Jinping at the UN 75th UNGA, Amy Davidsen, Executive Director, North America at international nonprofit, the Climate Group, said:

"The significant announcement by Chinese President Xi Jinping during the UN General Assembly and in the midst of Climate Week NYC is very welcome. 

China ramping-up its climate ambition comes just a week after the EU proposed increasing its own 2030 target. Despite the absence of US federal leadership, at Climate Week NYC this year, we are seeing countries, business, states and cities encouraging each other to set more ambitious emission targets.

While we look forward to further announcements and more details, China’s decision to take a path to net-zero emissions is a major landmark. Not just for China’s economic and environmental interests, but for our global interest too."
