Cop26 is a chance for developed countries to take the lead in cutting emissions and making good on financial promises
- Zheng Zeguang is Chinese ambassador to the UK
In the run-up to the climate conference in Glasgow, there are suggestions that without real participation and greater contribution from China, neither the conference nor the global response to climate change will get anywhere. The unstated worry is this: will China honour its pledges to reduce emissions?
This anxiety is unnecessary. Anyone who knows China well is sure that my country is serious about reducing carbon emissions and pursuing green development, and that we mean what we say.
