Climate targets: Economy-wide

    • to lower CO2 emissions per unit of GDP by over 65% from the 2005 level by 2030
      Economy-wide | Intensity target and trajectory target | Target year: 2030 | Base year: 2005
    • From the updated NDC: 
      - achieve carbon neutrality before 2060
      - have CO2 emissions peak before 2030
      - to lower CO2 emissions per unit of GDP by over 65% from the 2005 level by 2030


      From the 2016 INDC: achieve the peaking of CO2 emissions around 2030 and making best efforts to peak early; 60% to 65% reduction of CO2 emissions per unit of GDP by 2030 compared to 2005 level
      Economy-wide | Fixed level target | Target year: 2060 | Base year: 2021
    • “Energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP will be reduced by 13.5% and 18% respectively”
