GIZ, together with experts from the National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation (NCSC) and Tsinghua University were invited to provide valuable input for the participants. Furthermore, presentations and speeches were held by members of the Beijing Environment Exchange, the Shenzhen CTI International Certification Co., and the Shenyang Environment Exchange.
In addition to an insight into the Policy Outlook of China’s Carbon Peaking Target, Landscape of Carbon Neutrality as well as Tackling Climate Change during the 14th Five-Year-Pan, participants enjoyed an introduction into emissions trading and the EU ETS.
