The UK’s Carbon Trust has signed a memorandum of understanding with the China Energy Conservation Investment Corporation (CECIC) to identify ways of reducing carbon emissions in China.
The organisations will collaborate on a series of studies assessing the carbon footprints of Chinese businesses and products, as well as helping to develop low carbon technologies.
UK clean energy technology companies are expected to benefit from the collaboration through the establishment of incubator business support and the development of environmental technology industry parks in China.
“China Energy Conservation Investment Corporation and the Carbon Trust are both fully committed to tackling climate change improving energy efficiency and promoting [a] low carbon economy in our respective countries. We share the same important mission of pushing forward energy conservation and emission reduction”, say Wang Xiaokang, President of CECIC.
