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.
