The national carbon market will expand the coverage of the industry, with a cumulative turnover of 8.58 billion yuan

GlobalPolyurethane Network News: Recently, at a press conference held by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, Li Gao, director of the Department of Climate Change of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, said that in July 2021, The national carbon emissions trading market officially launched online trading. In general, after the construction and operation of the first compliance cycle, the national carbon market has established a basic framework system, opened up various key process links, and initially played the role of the carbon price discovery mechanism, effectively improving the emission reduction of greenhouse gases by enterprises. , the awareness and ability to accelerate the green and low-carbon transformation, and achieved the expected goals.

According to statistics, as of October 21, 2022, the cumulative transaction volume of carbon emission allowances in the national carbon market was 196 million tons, with a cumulative transaction value of 8.58 billion yuan.

Li Gao said that the Ministry of Ecology and Environment is stepping up preparations for the new implementation cycle, and the relevant quota allocation plan will be publicly solicited for comments in the near future. Next, it will continue to promote the construction of the national carbon market, including improving the relevant laws, regulations and policy systems, and promoting the issuance of the Interim Regulations on the Management of Carbon Emissions Trading. Data quality is the lifeline of the national carbon market. We will maintain a high-pressure situation of zero tolerance for carbon emission data fraud, establish and improve a long-term mechanism for carbon emission data quality management, information disclosure and credit reporting and punishment management mechanisms, etc., and strengthen data quality management; On the basis of the stable operation of the carbon market, gradually expand the industry coverage of the market, enrich the trading entities, varieties and methods; improve the national voluntary emission reduction trading mechanism, and study and formulate relevant trading management methods and supporting system specifications.

In April this year, the National Development and Reform Commission, the National Bureau of Statistics and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment issued the “Implementation Plan on Accelerating the Establishment of a Unified and Standardized Carbon Emission Statistical Accounting System”, deploying the establishment of a national and local carbon emission statistical accounting system, and improving the carbon emission accounting mechanism for industrial enterprises , establish and improve the carbon emission accounting method for key products, and improve the national greenhouse gas inventory compilation mechanism. Four key tasks are proposed to consolidate the statistical foundation, establish an emission factor library, apply advanced technology, carry out methodological research, and improve support policies. Five guarantees measure.

Li Gao said that a solid data foundation is needed to deal with climate change and “double carbon” work well, and the carbon emission statistical accounting system plays a role in providing data support and basic guarantee for “double carbon” work. However, statistical accounting involves various fields of social production and life, and there are many types of technologies and products. It is urgent to establish a unified and standardized statistical accounting system. The Ministry of Ecology and Environment will cooperate with various departments to implement the requirements of the plan, do a good job in the carbon emission accounting of industrial enterprises and key products, and promote the establishment of a unified and standardized carbon emission statistical accounting system in my country.
