China Environment Forum

Jonathan Woetzel, Director, McKinsey & Company Shanghai Office; David Moulton, Director, Climate Policy and Conservation Funding, The Wilderness Society; Moderator Jennifer Turner, Director, China Environment Forum, Woodrow Wilson Center

The McKinsey & Company carbon cost abatement curve for the United States has made a major contribution to informing the U.S. debate surrounding climate-change policy. Now McKinsey has done the curve for China- a quantitative, fact-based analysis designed to help policymakers and business leaders identify and prioritize potential avenues for reducing greenhouse gases. But what does it mean for U.S. policy and for global climate negotiations? Please join us for an examination of the range of technologies that China could deploy to address its energy and environmental sustainability challenges and how U.S. policy could impact these choices.
