On November 13, December 17-18, 2020, the Shenyang Municipal Bureau of Ecology and Environment (SYBEE) invited local company representatives from its local industry sectors to participate in a series of training on emissions data reporting to the national emissions trading scheme.

GIZ, together with experts from the National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation (NCSC) and Tsinghua University were invited to provide valuable input for the participants. Furthermore, presentations and speeches were held by members of the Beijing Environment Exchange, the Shenzhen CTI International Certification Co., and the Shenyang Environment Exchange.

In addition to an insight into the Policy Outlook of China’s Carbon Peaking Target, Landscape of Carbon Neutrality as well as Tackling Climate Change during the 14th Five-Year-Pan, participants enjoyed an introduction into emissions trading and the EU ETS. Furthermore, the training offered courses in monitoring, reporting, and verification for GHG emissions data and the reporting guideline for the ceramic sector, the Shenyang GHG emissions data reporting system as well as CCER offsetting and compliance.

Overall, the training module succeeded in building capacity and was useful for preparing the local industrial sector for the unified national emission trading system.

The Chinese government has set itself the goal of reaching the peak of CO2 emissions by around 2030 and reducing CO2 emissions per unit of GDP by 60 to 65% compared to 2005 levels. To achieve these targets, China is gradually establishing a national Emission Trading System (ETS) as one of the key building blocks of its mitigation strategy. Since the start of the project in 2012, the Sino-German project “Capacity Building for the Establishment of Emissions Trading Schemes (ETS) in China” has been supporting the Chinese government in this endeavour through knowledge transfer and strengthening of the political leverage of key institutions and stakeholders required to develop and operate an ETS. Initially, the project supported the development of the regional pilots ETS. Since 2016, the focus lies on support for the roll out of the national ETS. The project is jointly implemented by GIZ and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) of the People’s Republic of China. It is executed on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) within the framework of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) that is financing climate and biodiversity projects in developing and newly industrialising countries, as well as in countries in transition.
