China’s turning point

How climate action can drive our economic future


Time is running out to act on climate change. But rather than climate action being a drain on our economy, our China report shows it will significantly boost GDP and accelerate phenomenal growth. 


With decarbonization acting as a new economic engine, China plays a key role in providing the skills, technology and innovation for this global transformation. 

By moving now with bold action, we can not only avoid the worst impacts of climate change, but also create prosperous long-term economic growth for China and the world. 

But we only do this if we do it together and we do it now – we are at a turning point.
