Lian Maojun went to TEDA to investigate work on Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality

On July 1, Lian Maojun, a member of the Standing Committee of the Municipal Party Committee and Secretary of the Binhai New Area District Party Committee, went to the Tianjin Economic-technological Development Area (abbreviated as TEDA) to investigate work on Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality.

The Tianjin Emissions Rights Exchange is China’s first comprehensive environmental energy trading platform and one of China’s first batch of filing and trading institutions for voluntary greenhouse gas emission reduction. It is also the designated trading platform for the Tianjin carbon trading pilot. Lian Maojun walked into the Exchange to observe and understand its transaction status of carbon trading in real time through the online trading platform, understand development history of the Exchange and development of its key businesses, and comment on the Tianjin Emissions Rights Exchange’s service to the carbon market, carbon trading, and green financial innovation. The results of the work in such areas are fully affirmed, emphasizing the need to seize opportunities, plan in advance, and strive to build a national carbon emission exchange; it makes full use of the advantages of the free trade zone in terms of pioneering policies, dares to try, and strives to build an exchange as a “Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality” innovation demonstration in Binhai New Area; it develops consulting services in depth, actively produces standards and plans, and builds the Exchange into an authoritative think tank that promotes  work on “Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality”.

Lian Maojun emphasized that it is necessary to thoroughly study and implement Xi Jinping’s thoughts on ecological civilization and General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important instructions on work of “Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality”, and earnestly implement the Tianjin Municipal Working Conference on Promoting Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality, and Tianjin’s Leading Group for work of Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality. We shall constantly improve political judgment, political understanding, and political execution. Relying on leading enterprises and institutions such as the Tianjin Emissions Rights Exchange, we will steadily promote the “Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality” work and strive to achieve goals of “Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality” with Binhai New Area’s contribution and demonstration of the achievements of the new area. It is necessary to find out the base of “Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality” work in Binhai New Area, prepare high-quality “Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality” work plans and implementation plans for the new area, scientifically determine the annual and long-term work goals, refine the annual action plan, strengthen organization and leadership, improve the work promotion mechanism, and ensure the new area’s “Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality” work is at the forefront of Tianjin and even China. We must adhere to planning and guidance, expand and strengthen the Tianjin Emissions Rights Exchange, integrate resources to establish a “Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality” industry (talent) alliance and a green and low-carbon development fund, formulate a series of support and incentive policies, and give priority to “Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality” application scenarios. We will do our best to provide support for factors and policies, build a good green “Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality”industrial ecology, promote industrial agglomeration, and create a green “Peaking Carbon Emission and Carbon Neutrality” industrial cluster that leads the country.
