China on Sunday presented to the world its low-carbon strategies and practices at the China Day event on the sidelines of the ongoing UN climate change conference.

During the event, with the theme of "Low-carbon Development: China in Action," China showcased its low-carbon development at different levels through practice sharing, documentaries and panel discussions which gathered officials, regional and international representatives and green entrepreneurs from China and around the world.

As part of the event, international NGO The Climate Group published a new report on China's clean revolution, hailing some Chinese cities' leadership in combating climate change.

The report described how, since 2008, early-mover cities had started to develop low-carbon strategies that had become increasingly sophisticated.

Mark Kenber, deputy CEO of The Climate Group, told Xinhua that the clean revolution was not only necessary, but also extremely desirable; and that besides its climate purposes, this endeavor might also generate future jobs, economic growth and sustainability.

The idea of a low-carbon life style has been widely accepted by the Chinese as a symbol of high-quality life in some ways since years ago, the report said.

China is expected to increase its national energy intensity target and list low-carbon development as a priority in its next five-year plan for 2011-15, it added.

The Climate Group is an independent not-for-profit organization working internationally with government and business leaders to advance smart policies and technologies to cut global greenhouse gas emissions and speed up the clean industrial revolution.
