Beijing, March 30 - Neftegaz.RU. The Chinese state-owned oil producer set a target for carbon emissions to peak by 2025, ahead of the national target of 2030, and will strive to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

Sinopec Chairman Zhang Yuzhuo said:

Sinopec is already China's largest producer of hydrogen and prioritise hydrogen in its overall energy transition strategy.
