China will strive to do better in climate change fight - envoy

BEIJING, Nov 26 (Reuters) - China will work to achieve its existing greenhouse gas targets and strive to do better as the challenges of climate change become more urgent, Xie Zhenhua, the country’s top climate envoy, said at a briefing on Monday.

“I believe the promises we make will be 100 percent completed and we will strive to do better,” said Xie, speaking to reporters before a new round of climate talks in Katowice, Poland on how to implement the 2015 Paris agreement.

China, the world’s biggest source of climate-warming carbon dioxide, has pledged to halt its rise in emissions by “around 2030” through cleaner forms of energy, boosting efficiency and encouraging high-technology industries.
