Andrew Chang and Marilyn Waite / Recognizing China as the Real Battlefront Against Climate Change

December 20th, 2021

Marilyn and Andrew join us to discuss China’s role in the geopolitics of climate, the steps China is taking to reduce carbon emissions...as well as startup investment opportunities in the climate tech startup space.

China will reach peak carbon emissions in 2030, and expects to be carbon-neutral by 2060. One-quarter of the world’s emissions are from China, but without China, there is no solving climate change.

In 2020 alone, China outperformed the U.S. in wind and solar, including high-emitting and hard-to-abate sectors. By leveraging AI, carbon capture, big data and more, climate tech startups in China are giving the world hope for significant decarbonization. Opportunities for investment are plentiful, gateways to access funding are open, and pilot projects are in development like never before.
