Release time:2015-07-30

Energy-saving emission reduction, the role of the public has not been fully played out. Considering China's huge population base, if it can mobilize social forces to practice the green low-carbon lifestyle, will be a new world to deal with climate change

In June 30th, our country has submitted a national independent contribution document to the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on climate change. This more than 7000 words of the document, to the world made a clear explanation of China's actions to strengthen the response to climate change and policy initiatives, for the end of this year, the Paris climate conference into a constructive force.

The so-called "independent contribution", is the non compulsory, voluntary contribution. This has been a multinational point like the independent contribution file announced that China's 2030 action goal is: carbon dioxide emissions peaked around 2030 and strive to reach as soon as possible, the unit GDP carbon dioxide emissions than in 2005 fell by 65% - 20%, non fossil energy accounts for a proportion of energy consumption reached 60%, forest volume increased by about 4500000000 cubic meters in 2005.

The goal is ambitious, as the foreign ministry's climate change negotiations, particularly the high winds, are not easy to achieve. China's energy structure is dominated by coal, coupled with the transformation of the economic development of the pressure, the unit GDP carbon dioxide emissions per reduction of one percentage point, the need to pay a huge investment and efforts.

China attaches great importance to the issue of climate change, as a major strategy for the national economic and social development, the green low-carbon development as an important part of the construction of ecological civilization, to take a series of actions to deal with the global climate change has made an important contribution.

Considering China's huge population base, if it can mobilize the whole social forces to practice the green low-carbon lifestyle, will be a new world to deal with climate change.

"Every journey begins with the first step." China national independent contribution file in this sentence, the use of public green low carbon action is appropriate. As long as we have the awareness of environmental protection, positive action can less strenuous, or even just "finger" things, make their own contribution. "
