California And China Sign Agreement On Climate And Cleantech
The government of California and China’s Ministry of Science and Technology have announced they will work together to develop clean energy technologies, cooperate on emissions trading and explore other “climate-positive” trade and investment opportunities.
California and China agreed to establish the California-China Clean Technology Partnership, designed to drive innovation and commercialization in areas such as carbon capture and storage, clean energy, and advanced information technology that could help cut greenhouse gas emissions, according to a statement.
Joint pledges by China and the United States ahead of the Paris talks helped create the momentum required to secure the Paris Climate Change Agreement, and included a promise by China to establish a nationwide emissions trading exchange by this year.
