——Speech at the Climate Ambition Summit

(December 12, 2020, Beijing)

President of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping

Dear Mr. Secretary-General Guterres,

Dear colleagues:

It is a great pleasure to attend today's Climate Ambition Summit. Five years ago, with the utmost political determination and wisdom, leaders of various countries pushed for the conclusion of the Paris Agreement on climate change. Over the past five years, the Paris Agreement has entered the implementation phase and has received extensive support and participation from the international community. At present, the international landscape is evolving rapidly, and the COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a profound reflection on the relationship between man and nature, and the future of global climate governance has drawn more attention. Here, I make three suggestions.

First, unite as one to create a new situation in climate governance featuring win-win cooperation. In the face of the challenge of climate change, the destiny of mankind is shared, and unilateralism has no way out. Only by adhering to multilateralism, emphasizing unity and promoting cooperation can we achieve mutual benefit and win-win results and benefit the people of all countries. China welcomes all countries to support the Paris Agreement and make greater contributions to addressing climate change.

Second, boost ambitions and form a new climate governance system in which everyone contributes to their abilities. Countries should follow the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities, and strengthen actions to the greatest extent according to their national conditions and capabilities. At the same time, developed countries should earnestly increase their financial, technological and capacity building support to developing countries.

Third, increase confidence and adhere to the new idea of climate governance of green recovery. Green water and green mountains are mountains of gold and silver. We should vigorously advocate a green and low-carbon production and lifestyle, and seek development opportunities and motivation from green development.

China has made important contributions to the achievement of the "Paris Agreement" on climate change, and is also an active practitioner of the implementation of the "Paris Agreement". In September this year, I announced that China will increase its nationally determined contributions, adopt more powerful policies and measures, strive to peak carbon dioxide emissions by 2030, and strive to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.

Here, I would like to further announce that by 2030, China's carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP will drop by more than 65% compared with 2005, the proportion of non-fossil energy in primary energy consumption will reach about 25%, and the forest stock volume will be lower than that in 2005. With an increase of 6 billion cubic meters, the total installed capacity of wind power and solar power will reach more than 1.2 billion kilowatts.

China has always kept its promises, and will take the new development concept as the guide, promote comprehensive green transformation of economic and social development while promoting high-quality development, implement the above goals in a down-to-earth manner, and make greater contributions to the global response to climate change.

Dear colleagues!

"The sky moves in all seasons without speaking, and all things live without speaking on the earth." The earth is the common and only home of mankind. Let us carry forward the past and forge ahead together, help the "Paris Agreement" go far and steadily, and start a new journey for the global response to climate change!

  thank you all.
