The Chinese Academy of Sciences (ANC) on Friday announced the creation of the country's first research center to support the country's goal of carbon neutrality.
The center opened on Thursday at the ANC Institute of Atmospheric Physics, which has been conducting research related to carbon neutrality for many years.
According to the director of the said institute, Cao Junji, the researchers of the new center will assess the characteristics of the carbon budgets of China and the world in 2030 and 2060, as well as plan the optimal path to carbon neutrality. They will also assess possible options for environmental engineering and scientific approaches to transforming the energy structure.
Earlier, China announced a commitment to peak carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060.
