To reach the carbon neutrality goal, systemic, intensive interventions in cities need to be carried out as soon as possible. In September 2020, President Xi Jinping promised in the General Assembly of the United Nations that China will achieve carbon neutrality before 2060. This means that a brand-new, stage will be opened in China’s social and economic development. Data shows that cities are the leading end-users in energy consumption, accounting for over 85%. In Chinese cities, energy consumption and carbon emissions with production as the main source will be replaced with living consumption as the main source, as the economy goes through structural transformation. Carbon neutrality can be achieved only by systematic change.
