China attaches great importance to addressing climate change. In recent years, China has implemented a national strategy to actively respond to climate change, built a “1+N” policy system to achieve carbon peak and carbon neutrality, promoted industrial structure adjustment and energy structure optimization, adopted a series of measures such as energy conservation, carbon reduction and emission reduction, established and improved carbon markets, and increased forest carbon sinks, and made positive progress in addressing climate change. The theme of this year’s “National Low Carbon Day” event is “Actively Responding to Climate Change and Promoting Green and Low Carbon Development”, aiming to promote the formation of green, low-carbon, and sustainable production and lifestyle in the whole society, gather the collective efforts of the whole society, and actively respond to climate change.
Promoting green and low-carbon development is an inevitable requirement for improving the quality of the ecological environment, and it is also an inevitable choice for transforming development methods and achieving high-quality development. Since the establishment of the “National Low Carbon Day” in 2012, various activities have been held throughout the country to promote green and low-carbon concepts and encourage green and low-carbon actions. After years of efforts, the awareness of the whole society in responding to climate change has been continuously improved, and a good social atmosphere of green and low-carbon has gradually formed. The event organizer advocates that all parties actively participate in addressing climate change. Every industry and enterprise can discover new opportunities, draw new strength, and create new momentum from green and low-carbon, and everyone can be a supporter, practitioner, and advocate of green and low-carbon.
During the event, representatives of relevant scientific research institutions, enterprises, and individuals shared their experiences and insights on green and low-carbon activities, and released a series of low-carbon initiatives. During the National Low Carbon Day, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment held a green and low-carbon technology roadshow activity titled “Catalogue of National Key Promoted Low Carbon Technologies (Fourth Batch)”.
