WWU Münster Prof Löschel’s commentary in Nature Climate Change on China’s market-based ambitions to cutting greenhouse gas emissions
China’s climate pledge as part of the Paris Agreement is to reduce the CO2 emissions intensity of the economy and to stop the rise in absolute CO2 emissions. To date, China has used a mix of different policy instruments relying mainly on direct state interventions. At the same time, there has been a broader drive towards greater “marketization” of China’s economy and the introduction of a market-based climate policy instruments should be seen in this context.
