As we all know, China has been adhering to the path of green development. Especially since the carbon peak and carbon neutrality goals were put forward, a green and low-carbon transformation has been further accelerated across society. What are the future considerations of the MIIT regarding energy saving, carbon reduction, and green transformation in the industrial sector? Thank you.

Tian Yulong:

Thank you, and I'll give the floor to Ms. Tao Qing for this question.

Tao Qing:

Thank you for your question. Industry is the backbone of the national economy and its engine of growth. It is also an important battlefield for promoting green development transformation. The MIIT has thoroughly implemented the guiding principles of the 20th CPC National Congress and earnestly promoted a green and low-carbon transformation of the manufacturing industry.

First, the action plan for peaking industrial carbon emissions has been carried out in an orderly manner. Together with the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, we have issued an implementation plan for carbon peak in the industrial sector and coordinated in mapping out a timetable and a roadmap for peaking industrial carbon emissions.

Second, solid progress has been made in industrial green transformation and development. We have thoroughly implemented the plan for the green development of China's industrial sectors during the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025), introduced and implemented a package of schemes and action plans for improving energy and water efficiency, as well as comprehensive utilization of resources, and formulated the measures for supervision and inspection on industrial energy conservation. We have organized energy conservation monitoring on 3,572 key enterprises, and provided diagnostic services for 124 key enterprises and 1,187 specialized and sophisticated SMEs that produce new and unique products.

Third, green and low-carbon models have been cultivated and expanded. A number of national green factories, green industrial parks, and green supply chain enterprises have been selected. In addition, 99 green design demonstration enterprises, 282 enterprises meeting the industrial standards and conditions, and 32 pilot enterprises (parks) recycling industrial wastewater have been cultivated.

Fourth, the popularization and application of green and low-carbon technologies have been accelerated. Efforts have been intensified to popularize and apply advanced techniques, technologies, and equipment for energy and water-saving plans, cleaning and environmental protection, and comprehensive utilization of resources. Various supply-demand matching and technical training exchanges have been held online and offline.

Next, the MIIT will earnestly implement the guiding principles of the 20th CPC National Congress and the Central Economic Work Conference, take the carbon peak and carbon neutrality goals as the leading principles, take promoting green and high-quality development of the manufacturing industry as its own responsibility, and advance carbon and pollution reduction, green expansion, and growth in a coordinated manner so that green development can become the defining feature of the new type of industrialization.

First, we will accelerate the green and low-carbon transformation of the manufacturing industry. We will formulate and introduce the Guidelines for Accelerating the Green and High-Quality Development of the Manufacturing Industry, clarify the implementation measures, give differentiated guidance, and implement industry-specific policies, as well as promote the green and low-carbon development transformation of key industries, parks, enterprises, and localities in an integrated manner.

Second, we will conduct special actions for industrial energy conservation and carbon reduction. We will fully implement the carbon peak plans in the industry and key sectors. We will continue to monitor national energy conservation, and carry out in-depth activities providing industrial energy conservation diagnostic services and energy conservation services to enterprises. We will launch a number of pilot projects, including developing industrial green microgrids and digital carbon management systems.

Third, we will advance green manufacturing. On the basis of building green factories, we will accelerate the construction of the green manufacturing system and improve the evaluation index system in accordance with the new goals of achieving carbon peak and carbon neutrality.

Fourth, we will promote improving quality and efficiency in the comprehensive utilization of resources. We will carry out projects to optimize battery recycling and utilization and improve the recycling and utilization system. We will strengthen the standardized management of comprehensive utilization industries of renewable resources such as scrap steel and waste paper, promote the pilot implementation of extended producer responsibility for automobile products, and improve our ability to utilize complex and hard-to-use solid waste and emerging solid waste. We will update and publish the catalog of advanced and applicable technologies for the comprehensive utilization of industrial resources.

Fifth, we will strive to improve the level of clean industrial production. We will coordinate and promote green and high-quality development in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, along the Yangtze Economic Belt, and other areas. In particular, we will focus on steel, petrochemical, chemical, and other key water-using industries to carry out pilot recycling projects for industrial wastewater. 

Sixth, we will foster new drivers of green growth. We will vigorously develop green and environmental protection industries and cultivate key enterprises with advantages. We will improve the mechanism for promoting green transformation and guide fiscal and financial resources to increase support for the green development of the manufacturing industry.

Thank you!
