Event — Katowice, Poland

Sectoral Deep Decarbonisation Addressing Climate Change

Time: 13:30-15:00

 China's power, steel, building materials, petrochemical and non-ferrous sectors are typical energy and emission intensive industries in China, and emission reductions of these key industries will have a major impact on global climate change. Promoting green and low- carbon development of key industries in China through various ways will help them to adopt a new clean development model and better respond to global climate change, such as to eliminate outdated capacity, implement sectoral low-carbonization in the whole process, increase support for scientific and technological research and development, and facilitate technology promotion and renewal. The side-event is co-sponsored by China Low Carbon Alliance and Tsinghua University and will invite representatives from industry associations, enterprises, universities and research institutions to discuss ways to better facilitate sectoral deep decarbonization.
