Adjust font size:

China is possible to reduce its energy consumption per unit of gross domestic product (GDP) by 5 percent this year, but arduous tasks remain to fulfill the pledge of 20 percent cut by 2010, said Xie Zhenhua, vice minister of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), Sunday.

In the first half of this year, energy consumption per unit of GDP was down 3.35 percent, and the emissions of sulfur dioxide and COD were down by 5.4 percent and 2.46 percent respectively.

China has made real efforts to preserve energy in the fight against climate change, said Xie, the country's top representative in international climate change negotiations at a press conference.
