Hao Jiming, president of IEEPA¡¢Academician of the Chinese Engineering Academy¡¢State Environmental consultant made an opening speech representing the host. And he delivered a speech themed ¡±strengthening the concept of green development, paying special attention to the key regional atmospheric pollution control research¡±. He stated£ºthe strategic target of atmospheric protection in China£¬is to significantly reduce the concentration of various pollutants in the air, significantly improve the atmospheric environmental quality of cities and key regions through comprehensive prevention and control of atmospheric pollution , fully meet the national air quality standards in 2050, basicly realize the WHO guideline values of air environmental quality£¬meet the requirements of protecting public health and ecological safety. He also emphasized that one of the key measures to fundamentally solve the environmental problem is to promote green production and green consumption. According to the unreasonable industry structure and the extensive mode of production and life-style£¬we need to speed up distributing the industrial structure reasonably on the basis of resource and environmental carrying capacity£¬further strengthen the implementation of clean production ,bring forth new ideas in market institutions, and build green incentives to consumptive link.

Tang Xiaoyan, IEEPA¡¯s chief advisor and senior academician, academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering£¬delivered a speech themed¡°secondary pollution process in the atmosphere¡±.She stated£¬the secondary pollution in the process of atmospheric combined pollution control can¡¯t be ignored£¬especially in the process of heavy pollution. The essence of the secondary pollution is an atmospheric oxidation problem. VOCs and NOx emissions reduction is the key£»Because of the complexity of the source of VOCs, the VOC control requires longer-term operations£»We need to control the industrial source and other big sources first, without ignoring the importance of the small and medium-sized source£»management is the key to the control of small and medium-sized source£»Everyone is a maker of atmospheric pollution, activities of daily life will contribute to the level of air pollution. Population increase will increase the pollutants; Atmospheric pollution problem needs everyone's participation.

He stated that the speed of extensive urbanization growth is faster than the speed of environmental protection. Cities often gain a good GDP while a bad environment£»Pollution exceeds the environmental capacity, and always comes to nonlinear outbreaks£»We have to establish the philosophy of "develop in the protection¡±.

Du also pointed out that£¬¡°environmental capacity¡± is an important concept, economic growth and pollution emissions under the¡°environmental capacity¡±£¬does not cause environmental degradation£»but if the pollution is over the ¡°environmental capacity¡±£¬it will accumulate and come to a nonlinear outbreak, and worsen the environment.

Du also gave the solution£ºwe need to develop in the protection of clean water¡¢green mountain, and blue sky£»put ¡°Five Concepts¡±into practice and change the developing pattern£»actively adjust the industrial structure£»actively optimize the energy structure and promote the energy revolution£»strengthen the environmental-protection standard and regulation£»and advocate a green and low-carbon life.

"Carbon emissions need to be quantified throughout the production, transport, sale and use of these daily products," said Li, adding that the IEEPA has established a firm ¨C Beijing Global Index Technology Co., Ltd. ¨C under the approval of the Beijing Municipal Government to carry out research on low-carbon product standards and certification.

Low-carbon product certification will urge relevant enterprises to make products using eco-friendly materials and upgrading technologies.each individual or household will have a carbon account in the future, recording their own emission reductions, which can then be liquidated in consumer market. While green and low-carbon consumption becomes more common, production will also be boosted on the basis of low-carbon emissions.

A low-carbon life should not just be driven by social responsibility, but should also be market-oriented, said Li Junyang, vice president and general secretary of the International Ecological Economy Promotion Association (IEEPA).
