Seven ministries and commissions issued plans to promote synergies in reducing pollution and carbon emissions

Recently, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, and the Energy Administration jointly issued the Implementation Plan for synergies on Pollution reduction and Carbon reduction, making systematic arrangements for promoting synergies on pollution reduction and carbon reduction. The plan clearly aims to promote synergies in the industrial sector. We will implement green manufacturing projects, promote green design, explore the greening of the whole industrial chain of product design, production process, product distribution and recycling, disposal and utilization, and accelerate the green development of the whole process of emission reduction at the source, process control, terminal treatment and comprehensive utilization in the industrial sector. We will improve energy conservation and energy efficiency in industry

The Plan sets clear targets for pollution reduction and carbon reduction, namely, by 2025, a coordinated work pattern for pollution reduction and carbon reduction will be basically formed; Notable progress was made in structural optimization and adjustment in key regions and sectors and in green and low-carbon development. Form a batch of replicable and extendable typical experience; Synergy between pollution reduction and carbon reduction has been improved. By 2030, the synergy of pollution reduction and carbon reduction will be significantly enhanced to help achieve the carbon peak target; In key areas of air pollution prevention and control, significant progress has been made in coordinating efforts to peak carbon emissions and improve air quality. The level of coordinated treatment of water, soil, solid waste and other pollution prevention and control was significantly improved.

The plan adheres to the working principles of highlighting synergistic efficiency, strengthening prevention and control at the source, optimizing technological paths, emphasizing institutional innovation and encouraging pilot and pilot work. It proposes that a pattern of coordinated efforts to reduce pollution and carbon emissions will be basically formed by 2025, and the collaborative capacity to reduce pollution and carbon emissions will be significantly improved by 2030. The plan focuses on six main areas and proposes important tasks and measures. First, strengthen prevention and control at the source, including strengthening zoning control of the ecological environment, strengthening management of access to the ecological environment, promoting green and low-carbon energy transformation, and accelerating the formation of a green lifestyle. Second, we will focus on key areas and promote synergies in reducing pollution and carbon emissions in industry, transportation, urban and rural development, agriculture and ecological improvement. Third, we will improve environmental governance and promote coordinated control of air, water, soil and solid waste pollution with greenhouse gases. Fourth, we will carry out model innovation, and organize and implement pilot projects for collaborative innovation in reducing pollution and carbon emissions at the regional, city, industrial park and enterprise levels. Fifth, we will strengthen support and support, focusing on r&d and application of technologies, improving laws and standards, strengthening coordinated management, strengthening economic policies, and upgrading basic capabilities. Sixth, strengthen organizational implementation, including strengthening organizational leadership, publicity and education, international cooperation, assessment and supervision requirements.

In promoting industry synergies, “plan” put forward the implementation of green manufacturing engineering, promote green design, explore product design, production technology, product distribution and recycling disposal using the greening of the industrial chain, speed up industrial field source reduction, process control, end governance, the comprehensive utilization of the whole process of green development. We will improve energy conservation and energy efficiency in industry. We will carry out compulsory cleaner production audits in accordance with the law for enterprises that have two types of high energy consumption, and upgrade cleaner production in key industries to help a number of key enterprises reach international leading levels. We will encourage enterprises in key industries to explore the use of multi-pollutant and greenhouse gas collaborative control technologies and carry out collaborative innovation. Promote the application of carbon capture, utilization and storage technology in the industrial sector.

Industrial park in reducing the carbon reduction of collaborative innovation, “the plan” to encourage all kinds of industrial park of the leading industry and pollutants, according to their own carbon emission levels, actively explore forward reducing carbon reduction synergies, optimize the campus space layout, vigorously promote the use of new energy, promote the energy system optimization and cascade utilization, save water resource intensive and efficient recycling and comprehensive utilization of waste, We will upgrade sewage treatment facilities and waste incineration facilities, and promote green and low-carbon infrastructure development.

The plan emphasizes strengthening economic policies to reduce pollution and carbon emissions. We will increase fiscal policy support for green and low-carbon investment projects and the application of collaborative technologies, and financial departments should ensure funding for pollution reduction and carbon reduction. We will vigorously develop green finance, make good use of monetary policy tools for carbon emission reduction, and guide financial institutions and private capital to increase support for reducing pollution and carbon emissions.

The goal of “dual carbon” cannot be achieved without the participation of the public. The plan also calls for accelerating the formation of a green lifestyle. We should advocate a simple, moderate, green, low-carbon, civilized and healthy way of life, and reduce pollutants and carbon emissions from the source. We will expand the supply and consumption of green and low-carbon products, accelerate the establishment of a unified certification and labeling system for green products, and improve the promotion mechanism for green products. We will develop green communities, and launch a nationwide campaign against waste. Promote green packaging, promote packaging printing reduction, reduce printing area and color types. The public will be encouraged to give priority to green and low-carbon modes of travel, such as public transport, cycling and walking. Public institutions, especially Party and government bodies, will play a leading role in energy conservation and emission reduction. We will explore the establishment of public participation mechanisms such as “carbon inclusive”.

As an important industrial field, reducing pollution and carbon is of great significance to the green development of textile industry. Li Lingshen, vice president of China National Textile and Textile Association, said recently that the realization of synergistic efficiency of pollution reduction and carbon reduction should be taken as the overall starting point to promote the green transformation of the industry. A few days ago, the Chinese Academy of Engineering “double carbon textile industry development strategy and the technology roadmap” consulting projects have been started, the project will be based on China’s textile industry status quo of carbon emissions and the key link of the industrial chain, textile raw materials coefficient of carbon emissions reduction technology and waste material recycling carbon emissions benefits such as research, form the textile industry of low carbon development technology roadmap, And put forward China’s textile industry low-carbon transformation development policy measures and suggestions.
