We are committed to encouraging companies to incorporate climate action into corporate development strategies and corporate social responsibility so as to reduce carbon emission.

CBCA

To further put into practice China’s Intended Nationally Determined Contribution under the framework of the Paris Agreement, C Team together with Vanke Foundation, SEE Foundation and other organizations, officially launched a non- profit cooperation network- China Business Climate Action (CBCA) in September 2018 at the Global Climate Action Summit.
 
In December 2018, China Business Climate Action (CBCA) successfully hosted the Making Collective Impact of Corporate Climate Action side event at China Pavilion at the 2018 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP24). Xie Zhenhua, Special Representative for Climate Change Affairs of China, and former US Vice President Al Gore attended the event and delivered opening remarks. At the event, dozens of domestic and foreign guests from industry associations, enterprises, think tanks and environmental NGOs participated in the dialogues and shared cases to discuss the promotion of collective impacts of corporate climate action. Led by Wang Shi, representatives of the CBCA co-organizers established a steering committee to implement the eight action strategies proposed at the Global Climate Action Summit in September in California.

To further put into practice China’s Nationally Determined Contribution under the framework of the Paris Agreement, we call on businesses, industry associations, environmental NGOs, research institutions, media, and other players to do the following: 
 
We call on industrial associations, chambers of commerce, and federations to lead and promote carbon emission reduction, green transformation and green innovation in the entire industry chain and industry cluster. 
 
We call on businesses to integrate climate change programs into their development strategies and corporate social responsibility, to be a model in addressing climate change, to actively promote sustainable business models and solutions to climate change, and lead the trend of markets, industries and policies. 
 
We propose the following actions:
 
1.  Strengthen carbon management and carbon disclosure, and set greenhouse gas emission reduction targets in line with the Paris Agreement; 
 
2.  Promote renewable energy technologies, and advocate the utilization of renewable energies; 
 
3. Promote the experience and technology of green manufacturing, low carbon and circular development to reduce waste;
 
4.Promote sustainable development of the upstream and downstream industries for a green supply chain; 
 
5.Improve energy efficiency in construction, reduce energy consumption, and promote eco-friendly planning and design; 
 
6. Advocate green transport, such as new energy vehicles; 
 
7. Provide green consumption options for consumers;

The business sector should take actions to combat climate change, mobilize and support nongovernmental forces and engage more people in such initiatives and climate governance to jointly build a green ecosystem and a brighter future.

Business Climate Action Cases

2020 was a year of uncertainty. The COVID-19 pandemic has unsettled the global socioeconomic order and postponed the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), where parties were scheduled to submit new Nationally Determined Contributions. But the pandemic has made most nations to prioritize economic recovery over climate change targets.

Corporate climate actions were also faced with various challenges. Some enterprises had to postpone or cut their planned energy saving and emission reduction investments to ensure cash flow; some continued to optimize operational costs through energy saving and emission reduction measures; and some pursued business innovation to provide climate change solutions. Here we present a collection of 14 cases, featuring corporate climate actions of different scales, in the fields of carbon management, clean energy, green buildings, green finance, green supply chain and green lifestyles.
