China is going through fundamental environmental improvement, with traditional pollution of air, water and soil largely past the inflection point of the Environmental Kuznets Curve. Climate change has become the dominant environmental issue. Carbon neutrality has gained crucial momentum in the past three years and all major economies have set national targets for it. China’s plan is to achieve carbon peaking by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060. The COVID-19 pandemic has come to its end after three years of rampage, but the ongoing US-China trade war and de-globalization are creating new challenges for the deploy of environmental and carbon-neutral technologies and supply chains. In response to the new phase of China’s environmental and climate issues, the PACE 2023 Annual Conference will explore (but not limit to) the era of environmental post-turning point and carbon neutral policies and implementation, development challenges and opportunities, domestic and global governance and other related topics, to serve country’s need of environmental improvement and sustainable development in the new age.
Keynote speakers include Dan Guttman, Of Counsel at Guttman, Buschner & Brooks, PLLC.
