Since then, CCF has held over 37 events and discussions on specific climate change topics, facilitated countless linking opportunities between China’s climate change stakeholders, and attracted high-level stakeholders to participate in the discussions. CCF now has a network of nearly 1,600 experts and professionals, representing more than 700 organisations across China’s climate change community. CCF operates under the direction of an executive board and board of advisors consisting of Chinese and foreign professionals from all stakeholder groups in China’s climate change sector. The board and advisory members serve in a voluntary capacity without remuneration.
CCF’s current activities feature a series of high-level events delivered in partnership with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) under the China Low Carbon Leadership Network. Other current include information sharing and report launches in cooperation with carbon market consulting firms and foreign governments, and survey research projects in cooperation with universities on China’s pilot emissions trading schemes.
