Carbon dioxide emissions in China region

Infographic | 01-12-2017

By 2050, under the Green China plus scenario, China’s carbon dioxide emissions will be almost halved, compared to those under the baseline scenario. However, this is only half of what is needed for climate stabilisation at an average warming of 2 °C.

Green China plus scenario:

  • in the China region, China’s Green Transition Pathway, expected economic development and demographic development as projected by the Development Research Centre (DRC) of the State Council;
  • worldwide: current and planned policies on climate change mitigation.

The China region, in the global modelling, comprises mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, as well as Mongolia.
