China’s rapid industrialization has led to unprecedented economic growth over the last several decades that has come with both positive and negative consequences. Urbanization is also quickly shaping China’s future. If current trends hold, an additional 300 million Chinese will become urban residents by 2030, consuming as much as four times more energy and two and a half times more water per capita than rural Chinese. How is China managing these shifts and resulting impacts on the environmental and society more broadly? Find out in this market session about current policy priorities (including the Thirteenth Five-year Plan starting in 2016) and learn about the business, investment, and technology opportunities that will help China with its transformation to a greener, lower carbon mega-economy.
