(纽约– 2020年9月23日)中国国家主席习近平在9月22日举行的第七十五届联合国大会一般性辩论上表示,中国将加强其根据《巴黎协定》所作的承诺,二氧化碳排放力争于2030年前达到峰值,努力争取2060年前实现碳中和。习近平主席还呼吁“各国要树立创新、协调、绿色、开放、共享的新发展理念”,推动世界经济“绿色复苏”。就在该声明发表的几天前,欧洲宣布到2030年将碳排放量从1990年水平至少减少55%。
President Xi Jinping reaffirms China’s Climate Commitment
EDF statement from Fred Krupp, President
(NEW YORK – Sept. 23, 2020) In remarks by video to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, President Xi Jinping announced that China would strengthen its pledge under the Paris climate agreement, and aim to peak emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060. President Xi’s announcement comes days after Europe announced a plan to reduce emissions by at least 55% from 1990 levels by 2030. President Xi also called for “innovative, coordinated, green and open development for all” concepts to promote the green recovery of the global economy.
“President Xi’s latest comments are an important signal from Beijing, and present a dramatic contrast to the abdication of leadership in Washington. 
“This could be another milestone in China’s efforts to address its contribution to climate change. By setting peak emissions targets and with the goal of reaching carbon neutrality, China’s long-term vision for tackling climate change by the middle of this century has become clear. If that vision becomes a reality, it will represent an enormous step toward what the world needs to avoid the most dangerous impacts of climate change.
“With President Trump on the verge of pulling America of out the Paris Agreement, the world badly needs leadership on climate. Alongside the EU’s announcement of an ambitious 2030 target, China’s pledge to strengthen its Nationally Determined Contribution under the Paris Agreement could help provide that leadership and provide the impetus needed for more countries to consider updating their own commitments.
“The foundations laid during the recent EU-China dialogue pave the way for greater cooperation going forward. A step up on climate action from China, Europe and the U.S., which together account for more than half the world’s emissions, would be a real game changer. We now have two of the three out of the gate. America needs to get back in the fight.”
