China Carbon Forum (CCF) was established in 2007 by professionals in Chinaâ€™s climate change sector as a platformÂ to exchange information, best practices and engage with Chinaâ€™s climate change stakeholders. Since then, CCF has held over 50 events and discussions on specific climate change topics, facilitated countless linking opportunities between Chinaâ€™s climate change stakeholders, and high-level stakeholders such as Chinaâ€™s chief climate negotiator (Mr Su Wei), his Canadian counterpart (Ms Louise MÃ©tivier) and the Director of the National Development and Reform Commissionâ€™s climate change policy think-tank (Dr Li Junfeng). CCF now has a network of more than 1,400 experts and professionals spanning all areas of Chinaâ€™s climate change community.
Since 2012Â CCFâ€™s activities have featured high-level events delivered in partnership with the Deutsche Gesellschaft fÃ¼r Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) as part of a Low Carbon Â Leadership Network. This cooperation with GIZ continues to the present day. Activities also include information sharing in cooperation with carbon market consulting firms and foreign governments, and a research project in cooperation with the Australian National University on Chinaâ€™s pilot emissions trading schemes.
CCF operates under the direction of a steering committee and a group of advisors made up of Chinese and foreign professionals from various stakeholder groups in Chinaâ€™s climate change sector. The steering committee and advisory members serve in a voluntary capacity without remuneration.
