China will actively take part in negotiations on emission cuts for the aviation industry, the country’s lead negotiator for Unitied Nations climate talks said today at a briefing in Beijing.
Multiple measures in addition to carbon taxes and emission trading systems should be implemented to cut emissions, Xie Zhenhua, who is also a vice chairman of China’s National Development and Reform Commission, said. He spoke at a briefing today held ahead of UN climate talks scheduled for next week in Doha, Qatar.
Increasing energy efficiency and energy savings can also play a role in reducing emissions in the aviation and shipping industries, Xie said.
