Why we want to reimagine urban environments for climate impact
China accounts for 27% of global GHG emissions (USA at 11%), and its national policy is to peak emissions before 2030 and reach carbon neutrality before 2060
There is no future without China delivering on its goals.
China’s urban energy use accounts for 85% of its total GHG emissions, lead by urban industry, then by the building and transportation sectors.
Urban areas are central to delivering meaningful climate impact.
China’s urban population is 875 million growing to 940 million by 2030 (75%). China has 13 Megalopolises – the top five accounting for 75% of China’s GDP.
Urban areas must lead the way.
