Research on Shenzhen Public Transportation Sector’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions Quantification and Reporting Methodologies

In recent years, climate protection and low carbon economic transformation have become the core working objectives of the Chinese government. The Chinese government has targeted to reduce CO2 emissions from per unit GDP in 2020 by 40-45% compared with 2005, and has selected 7 pilots for carbon emissions trading. As one of the pilots, Shenzhen first officially launched its Carbon Emissions Trading Scheme in June 2013.
