China’s cap-and-trade announcement: What happens next?

China’s landmark commitment last Friday to launch a national cap-and-trade program in 2017 changes everything on the climate front, promising to drive down carbon pollution — and possibly inspiring other nations to take more ambitious steps so they are not left behind as the world accelerates towards a clean energy future.

EDF’s China team has been laying the groundwork for this climate breakthrough for 25 years — but much work remains to bring China’s program to fruition in the next two years. Click below to hear a discussion about what happens next.
