Introduction to the Industry Program

As the engine of China’s economic growth, the industrial sector dominates the country’s energy consumption, accounting for about 70 percent of total energy use. It relies heavily on coal and coal-based electricity, so CO2 emissions from China’s industry are significant.

The Overarching Goal:

To provide strategic, targeted assistance to support China’s industry sector in peaking its CO2 emissions by 2020 or earlier. The Program’s strategy is to assist China in accelerating its low carbon industry for a clean future by leveraging plants, products, and cities to peak emissions.

Program Initiatives:

  1. Supporting key industrial pilot Climate Leader Plants to implement CO2 mitigation options and to use their experience to provide leadership and best practice examples to scale across China’s most energy-intensive industries;
  2. Assisting Chinese industry to provide the world with energy-efficient, long-lasting, high-quality, and sustainable materials and products and to significantly increase sustainable consumption and recycling awareness within industrial enterprises; and
  3. Helping China to achieve an ambitious early peaking of industrial energy consumption and CO2 emissions in key industrial cities.
