The document lays out plans for mitigation, adaptation, low carbon pilots and climate governance systems in the region. It sets out a series of general aims for climate policy within the coming years, among them to encourage an increase of capital flowing into green and sustainable projects, and the better coordination of climate policy over several levels of government hierarchy.

According to the five-year plan, the installed capacity of renewable energy will reach 45 % and the renewable energy share of the total energy mix will reach 18 % by 2025. It also reiterated that the new production capacity of the “Two High” sectors, referring to sectors with high emissions and high pollution, such as the production of aluminium, coke, iron alloy etc., is strictly forbidden. There will be assessment of the implementation of this plan in 2023 and 2025, respectively.

A sustained focus is also on the reduction of water pollution, especially in the Yellow River, the Luan River, and the Songhua River basin, and the insurance of continued drinking water supply. Apart from this, media coverage also focused on measures taken to reduce air pollution, such as the reduction of coal burning for heating purposes.

Establishment of Carbon Footprint Management System

China’s Ministry of Ecology and the Environment (MEE) issued a program for a carbon footprint management system to develop low-carbon supply chains. This program of MEE is the first national-level policy to establish a domestic carbon footprint management system. The target of the program is the establishment of a general standard for product carbon footprint (PCF) accounting with international standards. It will define about 100 carbon footprint accounting standards for key products until 2027 and 200 until 2030.
