Greenpeace: automakers need to change faster
The Chinese automotive industry could miss the government's target of achieving climate neutrality by 2060. The environmental organization Greenpeace warned about this development in a report on Tuesday. Although manufacturers are well on track with their current course to reach a peak in emissions in 2027, the cutback in sales of combustion engine vehicles is set too low for the following decades. "The ideal response is for carmakers in China to completely phase out internal combustion engine vehicles by 2030," says Bao Hang, the Project Manager in charge at Greenpeace East Asia. So far, he says, that is not realistic. The government would therefore have to set tougher quotas.
