MEE publishes Notice on Emissions Data Collection for 2019

May 29, 2020

On 27 December 2019, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) published the Notice on Emissions Data Collection for 2019. As in past years, this refers to companies that emit more than 26,000 t CO2 per year and that are part of the eight sectors that are to be included in the national emissions trading scheme (ETS), namely petrochemicals, chemicals, construction materials, iron and steel, non-ferrous metals, pulp and paper, power and aviation. The power sector includes conventional power plants, co-generation of heat and power, biomass and captive power plants.

The local Departments of Ecology and Environment (DEE) will support data collection from companies in their jurisdictions until 31 March 2020. Following verification, the aggregated data must be submitted to the Department of Climate Change of the MEE by 31 May 2020.

In line with the Notice of Power Generation Enterprises List and Relevant Materials Collection for the National ETS (环办气候函〔2019〕528号), local DEEs are asked to update the list of power companies that will be covered by the national ETS and provide relevant materials such as account opening information for newly added companies by 31 May 2020. With a view to the start of the national ETS, the DEEs must submit default data for those companies that are unable to deliver their 2019 data. It is not mentioned how the default data will be calculated.

Germany and China signed the Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation in Combatting Climate Change and initiated this bilateral dialogue as "Sino-German Climate Partnership". The project has been established to support the cooperation between the German Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and the Chinese Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE). The new phase of the project starts in 2018 with close alignment to the restructuring at the Chinese government. In this phase, the project aims to advance the policy dialogue and cooperation with the Chinese partners domestically as well as within the international context of climate change. Part of the work will be supporting the development and implementation of China's medium- and long-term low-carbon development strategies, hence by supporting the Chinese government in strengthening the climate governance system. Domestically the SGCP project supports the policy dialogue on climate change (Sino-German Working Group on Climate Change) and enhances the exchange of German experiences and best practices, this includes strengthening capacities for the development of integrated climate and energy action plans as well as adaptation concepts for cities. On international level the SGCP project enhances the knowledge of both patterns about best practices in regard of climate policies and their implementation. For new cooperation topics identified by the Working Group on Climate Change, the project acts as an incubator for IKI development. As interface for information management, it serves a as a hub for exchange between partners of the IKI within and outside China, especially within the UNFCCC process.
