Verifier Training for Guangdong ETS Pilot – Best Practices from EU-ETS (Guangzhou)

30-31 July 2015 – In order to reach the goal of reducing the CO2 emission per GDP unit by 17% in 2015 based on 2010 levels, China has successfully implemented local ETS pilots in Beijing, Tianjin, Shenzhen, Chongqing, Hubei and Guangdong.

Guangdong Province is planning to include various additional sectors into its local ETS, including ceramics, textile, non-ferrous metal, plastic, paper making, transportation and buildings. Soon it will conduct inventory in these newly included sectors. Furthermore, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) requests provincial DRCs to organize Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions reporting for key enterprises in 2015. Therefore, capacity building for verifiers is vital and urgently needed.

High level experts from the German Emissions Trading Authority (DEHSt) and a senior verifier from EU-ETS shared their expertise as speakers during this training. It offered an interactive platform to introduce best practices and experiences of the verifying system in EU-ETS to verification institutions and carbon emission report verifiers from Guangdong. The introduction of local inventory guidelines in Guangdong was also tackled.
