The strategy deals with Shandong’s near- and medium-term efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change. By 2025, Shandong aims to promote contributions to climate change mitigation primarily through carbon intensity reduction, with the help of policy governance capacity building, and “control” of greenhouse gas emissions. 

Specifically, the FYP details seven key tasks referring to climate mitigation and adaptation: 1) to promote the peaking of carbon emissions and a low-carbon development of the industry, 2) to improve climate resilience of nature, the economy and livelihoods, 3) to promote scientific and technological innovation in response to climate change, 4) to carry out low-carbon pilots, 5) to support the role of the carbon trading market, 6) to promote public awareness and 7) to strengthen the climate governance system and capacity building

In the energy sector, the plan describes the expansion of wind and photovoltaic plants. According to the plan, a central project is the construction of an offshore wind farm with a production capacity of 10 GW. Overall, Shandong aiMs. to double its power generation from renewable energies by 2025 compared to 2020 (increase to 19% in the power mix).

Action Plan for Energy Saving and Carbon Reduction in the Cement Industry

With its action plan, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) aims to provide guidance to China’s cement sector for achieving energy savings and carbon reduction. The main goals of the plan are to keep cement clinker production capacity at about 1.8 billion tons and to support the entire industry to comply with rules under an efficiency benchmark. The energy intensity of cement clinker production is targeted to decrease by 3.7% compared with 2020, thereby saving 5 million tons of standard coal and 13 million tons of CO2 by 2025.

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.
