Climate change is the biggest challenge of our time. A sustainable future is possible, but it requires major commitments at all levels: government, the business community and civil society. As the world’s largest emitter of carbon dioxide according to the IEA, China’s green transition is critical to the success of the global green transition. Beijing has pledged to peak carbon emissions before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060, but in China, like in many countries, short-term economic concerns tend to trump longer-term sustainability efforts – and this is where Swedish companies can play an important role and support China on its path to a greener future.
Business Sweden is working with 12 leading Swedish companies whose innovative solutions are a perfect match to help speed up China’s green transition. This report sheds light on five sustainability challenges facing Swedish companies in China, and how collaboration through our ‘Pioneer the possible’ platform can pave the way for progress.
