    Summary

    • China, the world’s top carbon emitter in 2020, plans to peak carbon emissions by 2030
    • The burning of coal alone within China accounts for 20 per cent of global carbon emissions
    • Reducing the country’s reliance on coal-fired power plants would go a long way to fighting climate change
    • Vehicles are estimated to produce around one-tenth of total greenhouse emissions in China, so transitioning to electric vehicles would also significantly reduce carbon emissions
