China, the world’s biggest greenhouse gas emitter, will cut its carbon dioxide emissions per unit of gross domestic product, or carbon intensity, by more than 65 per cent from 2005 levels by 2030, said Xi.
That compares to targets China announced in 2015 of lowering carbon intensity by 60-65 per cent by 2030.
Xi also said on Saturday China will boost its installed capacity of wind and solar power to more than 1200 gigawatts (GW) by 2030, and increase the share of non-fossil fuels in primary energy consumption to around 25 per cent during the same period, up from a previous commitment of 20 per cent.
As of 2019, China had combined accumulative installed solar and wind capacity of around 414 GW.
