CHINA AND THE RISE OF ITS ‘ECO-CIVILISATION’

Energy, Environment and Climate
Date: Tuesday, 08 May 2018 08:30 - 10:00

Venue: Contact Organizer  |  City: Brussels, Belgium

China has become a game-changer in climate diplomacy, filling the void left by the US in the Paris Agreement and demonstrating strong leadership. With the creation of its new carbon emissions market, and its rapid introduction of new technologies, China intends to lead the way to a low-carbon future, as showcased via last year’s Mission Innovation event in Beijing, and the ambitious targets the country has set to decarbonize its economy. As the world’s biggest green bonds issuer, it supports national projects as well as companies in efforts to reduce environmental impacts. Institutional changes are also underway in the country to ensure natural resources, ecology and the environment occupies a more significant role. Abroad, China is investing massively in huge infrastructure projects, whether through its Belt and Road initiative or in Africa, but some questions remain. How can China’s new climate and environmental wide protection scheme not hamper its ever growing economic model?

•    Why has China transformed its vision and diplomatic role, and what role will it have on the wider economy? 
•    How sustainable is the ‘eco-civilisation’ era that China is entering?
•    What influence does China have on accelerating the uptake of new technologies and green finance by its counterparts?
•    Will its new emphasis on environmental protection impact China’s economic model?
