August 2nd, 2023: the Earth Overshoot Day. Let’s jointly work to Move The Date! 


Last Wednesday, August 2nd, we’ve reached Earth Overshoot Day, surpassing the Earth’s capacity to replenish resources with our annual consumption. 

We can look at it as we are entering the “red zone” of our bank account, where we spend resources we don’t have.


如今,能源的生产和再分配过程,占全球碳排放量的比重最大,因此扩大现有解决方案的规模至关重要。 现有的成熟的、商业化的建筑、工业过程和电力生产的能源效率技术,可以将地球超载日推迟至少21天,而不会因此损失任何生产力或宜居程度。


This is a worrisome situation, as we’re only in August, anyhow we can still take action to Move The Date later.

For instance, adopting energy-efficient Smart Cities globally, we could reclaim up to 29 days. 

Nowadays energy generation and distribution contribute to a large part of global emissions, so scaling up existing solutions is crucial. 

Existing off-the-shelf, commercial energy-efficiency technologies for buildings, industrial processes, and electricity production could move Overshoot Day at least 21 days, without any loss in productivity or comfort.

Also city planning can play a major role in shaping our need for cars. It matters because personal mobility makes up 17% of humanity’s carbon Footprint.


健康的地球、城市、能源、食物和人口。 现有解决方案有着巨大的潜力,这些解决方案将在被大规模部署、应用后发挥重要的作用,将地球超载日尽可能的向后推迟!我们与专家团队、技术合作伙伴们将一同继续探索更多的解决方案!

At China Europe Carbon Neutral, we focus on enhancing resource security in the five key areas: a healthy planet, cities, energy, food, and population. 

The potential of existing solutions is immense, ready to be deployed at scale to make us more resilient and Move The Date of Earth Overshoot ahead! 

Let’s work together to explore and implement more possibilities with our experts and technology partners!
