China strives to reduce carbon emissions

Five national political advisors held a news conference on how to preserve the environment and promote green development in the country. Xie Zhenhua, China's special representative on climate change, said the country still aims to hit the peak of carbon emissions by 2030.

And the goal could come earlier than expected. He also said China plans to complete industrialization by 2020, and its urbanization drive and population growth are both likely to be stable around 2030.
