China’s New Climate Economy

tsinghua logoToday I had the pleasure of attending a side-event on “Policies and Actions for Addressing Climate Change in China” organized jointly by Tsinghua University’s Institute of Energy, Environment and Economy, the China Green Carbon Foundation, the Certification and Accreditation Administration of the Peoples’ Republic of China, and the China Certification and Accreditation Institute.  All of the presentations were fascinating and demonstrated some of the finer points of China’s efforts to address climate change.  For an agenda of the event, see here. In particular, Professor Fei Teng gave a presentation on the Tsinghua Institute’s research to promote a “New Climate Economy,” which aims to address climate change through integrating smarter economic growth, energy security, and environmental protection.  I urge you to check out the report here.
