The China Council: global climate change cooperation

With the support of the Chinese government and international partners, the China Council has had a profound impact on China’s environment and development process and the establishment of a resource-saving, environment-friendly society.

Global environmental challenges require global solutions. It’s important that Canada strengthens its partnerships on climate, environmental protection, and conservation, with leaders such as China and other international partners. Our collaboration supports clean innovation, economic growth, and the achievement of our climate target. Canada is committed to providing leadership and working with its international partners in moving toward a more sustainable and resilient world.

The China Council

Established in 1992, the China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development is a high-profile international advisory body to the Chinese government. Through collaboration, it promotes global environmental sustainability by supporting Chinese efforts to manage environmental issues. Since 2016, Canada’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change has been its international executive vice chair.

The China Council is working to promote sustainable development and build a bridge between China and the international community on environment and development.
