Against the backdrop of an increasingly unstable climate, the COP26 Glasgow Climate Pact reaffirmed countries' consensus to accelerate climate action through 2030. Now the focus moves to COP27—to be held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt in five months—where there will be a focus on how to make the transition to net zero, with an emphasis on climate finance. A year and a half after China released its "dual carbon" target, dozens of industries have announced new carbon emission reduction plans and entered the implementation stage. However, time is short. China has less than eight years to reach its pledged carbon peak by 2030 and the green and low-carbon transition in energy, technology, and the entire economy will require huge capital investment, innovation, and reforms.


This event will discuss the roles of government, private sector, academic institutions, social organizations, and financial institutions in reshaping the economy towards carbon neutrality and catalyzing climate innovation.
