China Ratifies Paris Agreement Ahead of G20

Friday, 02 September 2016 10:09 PM

HANGZHOU, China (AP) — China has entered the emissions-cutting agreement reached last year in Paris in advance of the Group of 20 summit this weekend.

The state-run Xinhua News Agency reported Saturday that China's legislature voted Saturday to ratify the agreement.

Environmental groups expected China and the United States to announce they would adopt the Paris agreement, which calls on countries to set their own targets for reducing carbon dioxide emissions and update those targets every five years.

The agreement takes force when accepted by at least 55 nations that produce 55 percent of global man-made emissions.

China and the U.S. together produce 38 percent.
