The United States and China have signed a joint declaration strengthening climate actionCop26’s Beijing spokeswoman Xie Zhenhua said in Glasgow that the two countries should “think big and be responsible”, as well as “tackle climate change aggressively and co-operate”, bringing immense benefits to the people of the world.
Both countries reaffirmed their commitments made in Paris and pledged to transition to “strengthened climate action” in recent years. Since January, representatives of the two countries have worked together on the agreement with 30 virtual meetings. “China and the United States, alarmed by the research, are further recognizing the gravity and urgency of the climate crisis,” the declaration said.
Both sides therefore intend to collaborate on a regulatory framework on environmental standards related to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the 1920s, increasing policies to promote the electrification of decorbonization and end-use sectors to maximize the benefits to society through the transition to green energy, and to enhance the focus on key areas related to global economics, such as green design. .
“Both countries consider Measures to control and reduce these emissions increased as needed in the coming years“Before COP27, both sides are taking further steps to strengthen the control of methane emissions, which is further stated. China is committed to developing a comprehensive national action plan on methane.” China has pledged to gradually reduce its use of coal in its 15-year plan and is committed to making “greater efforts” to expedite this work.
“I welcome today’s agreement between the United States and China UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres tweets to work together for more ambitious climate action this decade. Coping with the climate crisis requires international cooperation and solidarity, which is an important step in the right direction.
“Cooperation required” in climate between US and China. This was underlined by US Special Envoy John Kerry, who announced in Glasgow with the joint announcement that “we have reached a new point” and that the agreement marks a “road map” for the future. According to Kerry, the United States and China have agreed to “work together to control methane emissions” and that “Beijing ‘s commitment to develop a comprehensive and ambitious national action plan on methane will have a significant impact on the climate crisis.” “There are no differences between the United States and China – said the ambassador of the Biden administration – but in the climate, cooperation is the only way to get the job done.” At COP26, Kerry underscored that China and the United States had “made the choice to work together” and said they were “satisfied” with the agreement reached in Glasgow between the two countries to strengthen climate action over the next decade. “I hope the steps we have taken will answer questions about China’s path and help accelerate the efforts of China and the United States and other countries,” he said.
According to President Joe Biden’s ambassador, Beijing and Washington had two options before them: they could leave COP26 without working together, “surprise the world about the future” or “stay here, increase ambitions and start moving in the right direction.”
