Ningbo in East China's Zhejiang province unveiled an action plan on June 15 to develop a low-carbon economy to support the nation's goal of hitting peak emissions before 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2060.

According to the plan, the city will sustain its efforts to lower the ratio of energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP before 2030.

By 2060, a low-carbon and circular economic system, a clean, low-carbon, safe and efficient energy system and a carbon-neutral long-term mechanism are expected to be established in Ningbo, with its overall energy efficiency being of a world-leading level.

To achieve these goals, authorities will improve the use of clean energies, facilitate industrial low-carbon transition, promote low-carbon urban life, and push ahead with the construction of carbon sinks.

The city will also roll out favorable polices to encourage more individuals to get involved in the decarbonization drive.
