Published on15 SEP 2015

China is the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases – and the largest renewables market. Kyung-Ah Park, head of the Environmental Markets Group at Goldman Sachs, discusses the significance of China’s pledge to peak emissions by 2030 and how the country is positioning itself as a leader in clean energy deployment.

The fact that [China is] now taking these bold steps speaks volumes to how seriously it’s taking its environmental pollution challenge – both domestically to its people, as well as on the global stage – and showing leadership on a critical environmental and societal issue.
