China said it would achieve a peak in carbon dioxide emissions around 2030, cut carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP by 60 to 65 percent from 2005 levels, increase the share of non-fossil fuels in its energy mix to around 20 percent, and increase the forest stock volume by around 4.5 billion cubic meters at 2005 levels.

The United States intends to achieve an economy-wide target of reducing emissions by 26 to 28 percent below its 2005 level in 2025. Actions to reduce emissions include the Clean Power Plan, which addresses carbon from existing power plants and additional fuel economy standards.

The actions also include addressing methane emissions from landfills and the oil and gas sector, continued reductions in high global warming potential hydro-fluorocarbons and additional appliance and building efficiency standards.

The EU and its member states are committed to a binding target of an at least 40 percent domestic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 compared to 1990. The target is to be reached jointly, as set out by the European Council of October 2014.
