Carbon neutrality, as a state of net-zero CO2 emissions, which can be achieved by counterbalanced all worldwide greenhouse gas emissions by carbon sequestration. Another way to reduce emissions and to pursue carbon neutrality is to offset emissions made in transportation, energy production, agriculture, and industry by reducing them through science-based measures such afforestation and energy saving and reduction emission. This can be done through development of renewable energy, energy efficiency or other clean, low-carbon technologies (https://www.europarl.europa.eu/news/en/headlines/society/20190926STO62270/what-is-carbon-neutrality-and-how-can-it-be-achieved-by-2050). In the 75th session of the UN General Assembly President Xi Jinping proposed that China will increase its National Determined Contribution and adopt more powerful policies and measures. We strive to peak CO2 emissions before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060 (http://www.igdp.cn/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/2021-7-21-IGDP-Report-EN-What-to-Expect-in-Chinas-Second-NDC.pdf) (https://news.bloomberglaw.com/environment-and-energy/china-pledges-carbon-neutrality-by-2060-and-tighter-climate-goal). Till the end of December 2021, net zero targets has been set by 136 countries, 115 regions, 235 cities, and 682 companies, which have covered 88% of global greenhouse get emissions, 90% of global GDP and 85% of the world's population (https://news.climate.columbia.edu/2021/12/16/net-zero-pledges-can-they-get-us-where-we-need-to-go/).
