China, Japan, ROK committed to achieving net-zero emissions

East Asia's commitment and confidence in the battle against climate change can help the world reach the goal of a global carbon-neutral future, according to experts.

The carbon neutrality announcements from China, Japan and South Korea are "a silver lining "amid inadequate global efforts to deal with climate change, the most disastrous crisis that humanity faces, said Jude Lee, program director of environmental group Greenpeace East Asia. They show "the different possibilities about how unconventional alliances can be formed to fight on the climate battleground".

And the three countries' commitments are "an important step in the process of making global change", said Jeong Su-jong from Seoul National University in South Korea.
