Adjust font size:

China continued to make headway in its efforts to improve energy efficiency as its per-unit energy consumption was down 2.88 percent year-on-year in the first half, official figures revealed on Thursday.

The figure was 0.1 percentage point more than the same period last year, according to National Bureau of Statistics figures.

The country launched a nationwide campaign to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse emissions in 2006. It vowed to reduce energy consumption per unit of gross domestic product by 20 percent and major pollutant emissions by 10 percent by 2010 from the 2005 levels.
