Key Opinions

With China and the UK both committing to ambitious goals to be carbon neutral by 2060 and 2050 respectively, the hard work has now commenced to realize this ambition.

Climate change and the environment now feature centrally in the global strategies of British businesses with China and other major economies all playing a central role.

Collaboration between British companies and Chinese partners whether in industry, Government or academic institutions is a critical part of this process and we at CBBC are eager to support the growth of these partnerships.
