Yellen Calls on China to Work With the U.S. to Address Climate Change
Janet L. Yellen, the secretary of the Treasury, said that the United States and China had a joint responsibility to back international climate finance funds to combat climate change.
Climate change is on the top of the list of global challenges, and the United States and China must work together to address this existential threat. I believe that continued U.S.-China cooperation on climate finance is critical. As the world’s two largest emitters of greenhouse gases and the largest investors in renewable energy, we have both a joint responsibility and ability to lead the way. It’s also critical that we encourage economywide transitions toward net zero, which needs to include the private sector.
