Digital Economy and Carbon Neutrality
With a gross domestic product share of 38.6% in 2020, the country’s digital economy is considered to play a key role in achieving this carbon neutrality target. This initiative is supportive of ADB’s recent announcement of an increased ambition of $100 billion in climate finance by 2019-2030, as well as UNFCCC COP26's call on scaling up the investments in climate change adaptation and achieving carbon neutrality.
This webinar invited Chinese experts and speakers from Alibaba Group, Ant Group, and Tencent Group to share their experiences and insights on the role of digitalization in implementing strategies for climate adaptation and carbon neutrality.
