CEIBS Insights | Brussels Forum 2022: China-Europe Cooperation on Decarbonization

In response to global climate change, a formidable challenge for mankind in the 21st century, China is committed to advancing a green and low-carbon economic and social transition in order to reach peak carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060. In recent years, China has made huge strides towards these “dual-carbon” goals. The country’s investment in low-carbon development is expected to cross the 100-trillion-yuan mark in the next 30 years, which will open up historic opportunities not only for China’s economic growth, but also for cooperation between China and the world’s other major economies, including the EU. In 2021, China-EU trade exceeded 800 billion RMB and China has now become the EU’s largest trading partner. In addition, with its technological strengths, the EU has been at the forefront of the global low-carbon transition. Stepping up China-EU cooperation will be crucial to achieving the “dual-carbon” goals and deepening China-EU relations.
 
During this recently recorded event hosted at dual venues in Brussels and Shanghai and co-organized by CEIBS and the EU-China Business Association, thought leaders from government, industry and academia exchange ideas on the development path and cooperation opportunities for China and Europe’s low carbon transition and building partnerships between government, industry, and academia.
