China’s State Council has released an action plan to reduce carbon dioxide emissions before 2030.

The plan puts forward China’s main objectives for two key phrases - the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25) and the 15th Five-Year Plan period (2026-30), including raising the share of non-fossil energy consumption, improving energy efficiency and lowering carbon dioxide emissions. By 2025, the share of non-fossil energy consumption will be around 20 percent, while it will be around 25 percent by 2030, and carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP will drop by 18 percent by 2025 and will be cut by more than 65 percent by 2030, compared with the level registered in 2005.

The plan states the key tasks to reduce carbon emissions before 2030, including promoting green and low-carbon transportation, advancing a circular economy, and supporting technological innovation.
