The SPS will continue research and provide recommendations on carbon emission peaking and carbon neutrality, including the role of digital technologies to support green technology innovation, comparative economic analysis of different low-carbon and net-zero policy options, including analysis of next steps for the national emissions trading system, potential carbon tax, regulations, incentives, and others. Of particular importance are transition options that include labor market support and equity issues. The Chief Advisors suggest the following issues that theSPS may wish to consider in its work:
- Key COP 26 outcomes and implications
- Proposals to sequence short-medium-and longer-term dual carbon targets in ways that address energy reliability, accessibility and affordability
Specific geographic areas and sectors most affected by carbon targets, and concrete analysis of green transition mechanism.
Track 2 dialogues between China, US, EU, and UK are encouraged to convene experts in sharing perspectives and advice. Topics may include BRI coal phase-out, carbon border adjustment mechanisms, and others.Task Force: Global Governance and Ecological Civilization Topic: - Year: 2021 Phase: Phase VI (2017-2021) Active
