COP26 has just concluded and a new climate change pact has been announced and for the first time, the reduction of coal usage has been included. More urgent efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are being addressed while developing countries are promised billions of dollars in order to adapt to the impact of climate change.
China has announced its target of net zero emissions by 2060; and it will start to reduce its usage of coal from 2026 and thereafter.
In this context, State Grid Corporation of China, the country’s state-owned electric utility and also the world’s largest utility, launched a carbon neutral index in April 2021 in partnership with Sino-Securities Index Information Service.
