Beijing, June 5 (Xinhua) - If the Covid-19 pandemia has taught us something, is that no one is safe until all are safe, a lesson that can be applied easily. To the threat of climate change as well.

China has shown great commitment to its climate objectives despite facing innumerable social and economic priorities such as the world's largest developing country. Beijing has announced its ambition to add its carbon emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality in 2060, a movement that materializes the concept of a common shared future community for humanity.

This ambitious commitment means that China has to make an unprecedented reduction in carbon emissions and pass from carbon peak to carbon neutrality faster than any country of the history.

However, its commitments are based on solid carbon reduction achievements in recent years and, therefore, are achievable. For example, China's carbon intensity had decreased by 48.1 percent by the end of 2019 of the 2005 level. From 2012 to 2019, China's GDP grew by an annual average of 7 percent, while energy consumed for Achieving this economic development only increased by an annual average of 2.8 percent.

Guided by the country's clear objectives, governments and local companies have established their own carbon reduction schedules. Shanghai is committed to peak carbon dioxide emissions at 2025, five years before the national goal. Beijing, Guangdong, Jiangsu and Hainan have also included a carbon peak at its 14th five-year plan (2021-2025) and concrete route maps were drawn.

Renewable energy, driven by technological advance, is playing an indispensable role to help China meet its climate goals, with the generation of hydroelectric, wind and Photovoltaica of the country, which has the world in terms of its accumulated installed capabilities.

Consequently, the proportion of energy consumption of the country covered by coal in 2019 decreased by 10.8 percent compared to the 2012 figure, according to An energy energy document issued in December 2020 by the Information Office of the State Council of China.

In April, the latest models of electric vehicles from Nio, Geely and BYD, among other great names, made headlines at the Shanghai Auto Show. The new players, including Huawei and Xiaomi, are stacking this industry to claim part of the market.

Sale of new energy vehicles (nev) in China, which is already the nev market leader in the world, shot 2.8 year from one year to 515,000 units In the first quarter, it showed data from the Association of Automobile Manufacturers from China.

China has increased to the climate change challenge in a way that receives its status.

The effort to address climate change must be of a global nature, just like concrete action, no one is safe. International agreements, such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and Paris Agreement, have provided a decarbonization plan for the world. Now is the time to act. EndItem
