Greenpeace: China's car industry is far behind 'Net Zero' goals by 2060

News 2022-01-19 10:44:58
New research from Greenpeace East Asia showed that China would not meet its "Net Zero" target in 2060 with the current carbon dioxide emissions. Accordingly, China will reach its carbon emission peak in 2027 and then plateau. However, China's emissions were reduced at a rate of roughly 1% per year for three years and just 11% by 2035, far behind the Net Zero goal by 2060 for the automobile sector. Greenpeace estimated that by 2035, China would have to reduce emissions by at least 20% to meet the target. Otherwise, it "would require extreme, potentially unachievable, decreases later on." The group also laid out pathways for China's car industry, saying China must have 63% of zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2030 and 87% by 2035. -
