"China will always firmly and actively respond to climate change and implement the Paris Agreement." Xie Zhenhua, China's special representative for climate change affairs, at the 2018 annual report on China's climate change policies and actions held by the State Council Information Office on the 26th Said like this.

Resolutely and actively respond to climate change

This year's UN Climate Change Conference will be held in Katowice, Poland, and will be the 24th Conference of States Parties.

"This conference is an important node in the process of global climate governance. We hope that the conference will complete the negotiation on the implementation details of the Paris Agreement as scheduled, properly resolve the funding issue, and issue to the international community the implementation of the Paris Agreement, the promotion of green and low-carbon transformation, and construction A positive signal of a community with a shared future for mankind." Xie Zhenhua said that China will continue to play a positive and constructive role and work with all parties to make every effort to promote the success of the Katowice Conference.

He said that at present, the trend of mankind to take the road of green and low-carbon development highlighted by the response to climate change is unstoppable. Although the U.S. government announced its withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, the U.S. society still has great positive factors in its response to climate change.

Xie Zhenhua said that regardless of any changes in the positions and attitudes of other countries, China will always firmly and actively respond to climate change and implement the Paris Agreement. "The promise we made will be 100% fulfilled, and we will strive to do better." China has sent such a strong signal, which has played a stabilizing role in the international community's response to climate change.

my country completes its carbon intensity reduction target three years ahead of schedule

The report released on the same day showed that in 2017 China’s carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP (carbon intensity) fell by about 46% compared to 2005, which has exceeded the 2020 goal of reducing carbon intensity by 40%-45%. The rapid growth of carbon emissions has been achieved. Initially reversed.

In addition to this indicator, China promised that by 2020, non-fossil energy will account for about 15% of primary energy consumption, and forest stock will increase by 1.3 billion cubic meters.

Xie Zhenhua said that up to now, China’s renewable energy accounted for 13.8% of primary energy, which is still some distance away from 15%, but this goal will definitely be achieved by 2020; the forest stock has increased by 2.1 billion cubic meters, which is also over Completed the 2020 goal.

"The achievement of these goals has laid a very good foundation for achieving the peak of carbon dioxide emissions in 2030 and striving to complete them ahead of schedule." He said.

Xie Zhenhua also introduced that my country has initiated the construction of a national carbon market and deepened South-South cooperation in addressing climate change to help other developing countries improve their ability to address climate change.

Promote carbon market construction in stages and steps

At the end of 2017, the "National Carbon Emission Trading Market Construction Plan (Power Generation Industry)" was released, launching my country's carbon emissions trading system. Prior to this, since 2011, my country began to carry out carbon emission trading pilot projects in 7 provinces and cities. Starting in June 2013, pilot carbon markets have been launched for online trading. At present, the transaction volume has reached 270 million tons of carbon dioxide, and the transaction amount has exceeded 6 billion yuan.

"In the areas where carbon trading pilots are carried out, both the total amount and intensity of carbon emissions within the pilot scope have been reduced. The carbon market has indeed played its role in controlling greenhouse gas emissions and promoting local low-carbon development." The Ministry of Ecology and Environment responds to climate change Director Li Gao said.

He said that the construction of the carbon market should be promoted in phases and steps in accordance with the work arrangement of easy first and then difficult and seeking progress while maintaining stability. On the basis of the power generation industry taking the lead in launching carbon emissions trading, gradually expand the scope of industries participating in the carbon market, the scope of trading entities, and increase the corresponding trading varieties.

He said that the next step is to speed up the construction of the carbon market, including speeding up the construction of related regulations and systems such as the Interim Regulations on the Management of Carbon Emissions Trading, and promoting the construction of related infrastructure such as the registration system, trading system, and enterprise direct reporting system. Carry out carbon emission reporting, verification and quota management of key emission units, and strengthen the capacity building of relevant departments and institutions.
