Green Development- a Driving Force for Eliminating Haze

A Review of CEES over the past Eight Years and Its Prospect

By China Energy and Environment Research Center & CEES Secretariat


    The 17th CPC National Congress made the construction of ecological civilization an important part of the Party’s guiding principles of governance, and the National Energy Administration (Referred to as NEA)and the Ministry of Environmental Protection were newly founded. Such is the background against which China Energy and Environment Summit (Referred to as'CEES”) was established in 2008. The international summit as a mechanism analyzes and predicts the changes of China’s energy, environment and climate on an annual basis. To achieve green development and eliminate haze has become the dream of CEES over the eight-year course, and became the catalyst to greenization.

     To accomplish the dream of eliminating haze cherished by all, the political, industrial and academic communities and media of China and the world have contributed to the development of CEES and the implementation of the “Bai-Qian-Wan-Wan” Activity Plan of China Energy and Environment (“Bai-Jia-Jiang-Tan”, “Qian-Wei-Zhuan-Jia” and “Wan-Wan-Yi-Zhong”) in their joint efforts. In 2009, the State Council made CEES the second (also the biggest) sub-summit of the Global Think-Tank Summit. WEN Jiabao (member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee and the State Council Premier at the time) received the major foreign delegates who attended the Global Think Tank Summit. LI Keqiang (member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee and Vice Premier of the State Council at the time, and the present Premier of China) gave a keynote speech.

      In October 2012, the Resource Saving and Environmental Protection Department of National Development and Reform Commission(Referred to as'NDRC”), the New Energy and Renewable Energy Department of NEA, the University of International Business(Referred to as'UIBE”) and Economics and National Information Center jointly launched the “Bai-Qian-Wan-Wan” Activity Plan of China Energy and Environment, and a series of achievements on green development have been achieved.

Firstly, a number of the world’s top promoters of green development have been attracted to the Summit. 

    Of nearly 1000 guest speakers and senior experts gathered here, about one hundred are either leaders of competent ministries including CPPCC, NDRC, NEA, the Ministry of Environmental Protection, the Ministry of Science and Technology and state-owned energy tycoons; or counselors of the state council, 'Two Bombs and One Satellite' awardees, or academicians of Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering. Promoters of green development including the former president of India, Nobel Prize Winners and leaders of international organizations, the United Nations Secretariat, Fortune 500 companies, and multi-national enterprises are also among them. Most noticeable, at the second summit (the Global Think-Tank Summit – the China Energy and Environment Summit ), when WEN Jiabao, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee met the major foreign guests attending the session, and LI Keqiang, Vice Premier of the State Council delivered a keynote speech at the general summit. Keynote speeches are delivered at each session by leaders and experts of NDRC, NEA or other energy-environment departments.

Secondly, a series of systematic theories and practice achievements have been collected and made which may influence the whole world.

      Since 2008, around the green development and ecological civilization construction ,  have been made , a lot of new achievements including a series of green, low-carbon, energy-efficient, environmental, efficient innovations, inspiring advices, classic cases and systematic theory of Green Development have been forming. We gave scientific definitions to greening economy and energy, green energy revolution, greening institutional system and greening culture, science and technology as well as their internal logical relationships, and proposed the overall thought and basic solution for China to achieve green development, which includes breakthrough, key, security, foundation, objectives and technical support.

      In the theory section of People's Daily, on the First article of theory section of Economic Daily , on the front page head piece of China Energy News have been published such important articles as Green Development- a Driving Force for Eliminating Haze, the Path Choice of Green Development , the book review of Green Development, the Global Dream , Supporting the Green Revolution by Energy Structural Revolution, Forcing low-carbon green transformation by Cleaning Air Pollution, etc., adopted by the central people's government of PRC, etc. On New Year's day special report 2016 (Colored across version) --Looking to 2016 new Trend of China's Economy by the Economists, Economic Daily has published the article Leading economic development Greening (with photo) which was a speech made by the LIN Zhiqin as a special economic domain experts and scholars of Economic Daily.

     On the central mainstream media and media has published thousands of research reports (such as the annual China's energy development environment), papers, inspiring advices and classic cases, and news reports, which is a solid foundation of systematic thought of Green development, eliminating ash haze. We have officially published Green Development, the Global Dream(2014.11, left figure), The Theory of Green Development(Ash Haze Elimination)(2016.05), The Path to Explore the Global Think-Tank (2011.01, figure above), Economy: Green China (2013 third quarterly), compiled 7 editions of conference proceedings from 2008 to 2013, collected more than 320 papers and abstracts that add up to more than 2 million words and characters, and built a website of CEES containing over 10 millions of words in both Chinese and English.

     The results have been recognized and given utmost attention by the State Council, NDRC,NEA, Central Committee Organization Department,  Party Literature Research Center of CCCPC, Ministry Of Science and Technology, Environment Protection Department,  Ministry of Land and Resources, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Ministry of Commerce , State Forestry Administration, China meteorological Administration, The Central Committee of the Communist Young League, All-China Federation of Trade Unions, Ministry of Education, United Nation Secretariat, U.S. Department of Energy, International Energy Agency, Provincial or Municipal Government of Shanghai,Hunan and Jiangxi, Provincial or Municipal Party Committee of Beijing Hunan, Jiangsu, Chongqing People’s Congress, and have a widespread effect throughout the whole society at home and abroad. We have also given our opinions and suggestions on national green development and energy environment development, helped the common public from all circles understand the development of China’s energy and environment issues and trends more effectively, grasp the guidance of government polices accurately, and promoting international technological and economic cooperation on energy environment and climate change.

      In Nov. 2014, after having summarized a series of innovations, inspiring advices and classic cases systematically, the summit launched the first blue book---Green Development, The Global Dream. Published by Economic Press China, the book has been highly regarded by People’s Daily: This book has offered a series of valuable viewpoints and claims for China’s ecological civilization construction and the world’s green development, and it has promoted a series of innovations of green development, and drawed a bright future for China’s green development. Tens of thousands of institutions, media, communities and corporations such as CCCPC Party Literature Research Office, Organization Department of CCCPC, NEA, Central Committee of Communist Young League and All-China Federation of Trade Unions have spread and reproduced and adoptd green achievements of the book, which has promoted a further sustainable development of China Energy and Environment Summit. The blue book On Theory of Green Development(Haze Elimination) was promoted at the same time as well. This is what we have done before Political Bureau of CCCPC changed the “Four Modernizations” into “Five Modernizations” (Modernizations of New Industry, Agriculture, Informatization, Urbanization and Greenization) and firstly raised the idea of “Greening”.
