China Inc. publicly embraces Xi's 2060 'zero carbon' goal

Plans for slashing emissions hazy but companies under pressure to deliver

China's largest steel and aluminum producers have vowed to deploy new technologies to curtail their carbon emissions.

SHANGHAI -- Chinese legislators, due to convene Friday in Beijing, are expected to set out a timetable for achieving President Xi Jinping's goal of eliminating net carbon dioxide emissions by 2060.

Ahead of the annual National People's Congress session which is to adopt a new five-year national development plan, many of the country's largest companies -- and emitters -- have been making a point of publicly embracing the goal of carbon neutrality.
