China has launched the world’s largest carbon market and increased its targets to install 680GW of renewable power capacity by 2020. As the concept of ecological civilization becomes the core tenet of China’s development strategy, will this inspire a new wave of environmental leadership across the globe – and how? China Dialogue Trust CEO Isabel Hilton joined CGTN’ anchor Tian Wei at a discussion session called “China’s Green Leadership” at the Summer Davos in Tianjin, China, on Sep 18, 2018. Other guests included Steven Monfort, acting director of Smithsonian National Zoological Park and director of Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and Professor Lin Boqiang, dean of the China Institute for Studies in Energy Policy at Xiamen University.
