The South Korean Cabinet has approved the government's new goal of cutting the country's carbon emissions by 40 percent by 2030 as part of efforts to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
It's a plan even more ambitious than the initial target of 26.three percent.
Those cuts are from 2018 levels.
The road map broadly covers two scenarios.
In terms of energy supply, like power plants, the government will seek to lower the sector's emissions by 44.4 percent, and for other industries, the target is 14.5 percent.
President Moon plans to introduce the country's new vision at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland in early November.
