At present, a number of countries and regions around the world have adopted climate change legislation or legislative amendments to provide legal safeguards for the realization of carbon neutrality. Long-term, sustained and deep emissions reduction is an inevitable trend for China's future development, which requires a good top-level design and the establishment of a long-term mechanism to address climate change through the rule of law. At present, China has not yet formulated a special law to deal with climate change, and the realization of the "dual-carbon" goal is not guaranteed by the rule of law. According to the overall process of realizing the goal of "dual-carbon" in China, this paper analyzes the current status of "dual-carbon" legislation in China, and explores the legislative path suitable for China's "dual-carbon" strategy, combining the theory of public trust and the theory of social interest protection.
