By now, EU, China, Japan, Korea, Canada, together with South Africa etc., have announced their carbon or GHGs neutrality targets. And it is also very possible that United States will announced its carbon neutrality target. All these countries’ CO2 emission accounts for around 70% of global emission. Because these countries are technology and economy dominating countries, it is possible that the global will reach carbon neutrality by 2050. Carbon neutrality by 2050, is matching with the emission pathways under the Paris Agreement targets, even with its 1.5℃ warming target. Researches show that it is feasible to make carbon neutrality by 2050, and there is strong need for innovative technologies, and there will be technology and economy competition in future to make their pathways towards to the carbon neutrality targets.

Key words: Paris Agreement targets, International collaboration, Carbon neutrality, Mitigation pathways
