Carbon peak and carbon neutrality have become the buzzwords of the moment, which represent part of the key tasks for this year. As the head of a central enterprise engaged in the field of energy conservation and environmental protection, Song Xin, a member of the CPPCC National Committee, put forward practical proposals for achieving the carbon peak and carbon neutrality targets based on the company’s in-depth research.

Song noted that the 14th Five-Year Plan period is key to achieving the goal of carbon peak and the vision of carbon neutrality. As a major strategic direction and policy action, carbon peak and carbon neutrality involve industrial upgrading, technological innovation, institutional innovation and many other aspects. In the long run, it is necessary to create a more favorable environment to promote industries and businesses to take an active part in the drive.

Song submitted following proposals: First, build zero carbon demonstration projects to attract participation from market entities. Second, accelerate research on key core technologies and explore scientific solutions to carbon peak. Third, establish a carbon-negative industrial cluster to promote low-carbon industrial transformation. Fourth, optimize the carbon trading mechanism and stimulate the vitality of the carbon trading market. And fifth, build social consensus and promote low-carbon production and lifestyles.
