In opening remark of Mr. Adegboyega Ajan, he claimed that the year 2015 witnessed many major global events which underscore the recognition and the importance to pursue sustainable development through promotion of green and low carbon development. The main aim of the Paris Agreement is to keep global temperature rise during the 21st century at well below2 °Cand drive efforts to limit temperature increases even further to1.5 °C. The agreement also aims to strengthen the ability of countries to deal with the impacts of climate change. UNIDO as well as other co-organizers of WEC together with IEEPA and UNESCO is happy have you in our midst to share ideas and exchange information on how to move forward the global agenda for green and local carbon development.
Hans Dencker Thulstru from UNESCO emphasized in his remark that: WEC has accumulated a lot of wisdom and experiences on environmental protection and the development of green low carbon.The theme of this year’s Summit relates to the dissemination of new low-carbon ideas and technologies, as well as the attainment of an accord - a balance - between environmental sustainability and economic development. The situation we face is quite simple: economic growth without environmental sustainability is not an option. During the past decades of rapid economic growth, this has perhaps not always been obvious. However, as the environmental costs of growth have increasingly become painfully evident, we now witness the integration of environmental sustainability into development strategies at all levels – along with an increasingly visible place in policy discourse - in particular here inChina. This is a very encouraging – and urgently needed - trend. The organizations represented here today are uniquely placed to engage the public in this discussion – and to highlight the innovations that provide us with greener, low-carbon options. The choices we make as individuals make a difference – let us do our best to inspire young people to become active in protecting their environment, and in committing themselves to make a positive difference.
Chairman of the board of supervisors of state-owned key enterprises of the State Council Zhao Hualin said in the round-table meeting, the influence of economy new normal for green low carbon is big, high pollution and high energy consumption industries with excess capacity is facing the development transformation, the energy consumption was sharply; International price of oil, natural gas has greatly downward trend is likely to continue for a long time, this is the changing structure of energy, improve the environment important window period as well as an opportunity. In addition, there are challenges, such as oil industry, face difficulty is very big, on the other hand because of lower prices of coal, thermal power efficiency is now the best, this leads to a concern, will not have to have surplus thermal power, it is squeezed. For green low carbon development, photovoltaic and wind power is clean and good energy, but still in serious rely on subsidies, and the country now only 5% ~ 6% growth, fiscal expenditure is 25%, the national finance payment pressure is also very big, now that the traditional energy and clean energy price difference is bigger and bigger, the enterprise rely on subsidies cannot achieve clean energy market, so the green low carbon development also must be down-to-earth, to have a up to the present level of industrial structure development to know the stage of design, development must rely on subsidies to light won't be too long, green low carbon future development of Chinese society and the direction of the global development, but must find a conform to the development of the market mechanism and running track.
President of the Overseas Chinese Federation for Organs Directly under the Authority of the CPC Central Committee; Former Vice President of the Central Party School Li Junru presided over the "“2015 Annual Summit on Green and Low Carbon Transformational Development high-level roundtable summarized: put forward the five combination: the first is the combination of ideas, policies and actions, the concept of the green officially into the speed of the nation's development; Second, the combination of government, enterprises and society, the government must have a policy of correct guidance, the enterprise must have the social coordination, if the society can't reach consensus, all policies have failed; Third, industrial structure, energy structure and the regulation of the market to combine, adding regulatory structure adjustment, if not regulation, structure adjustment does not reach the designated position, the target is lost; Fourth, scientific and technological innovation, market promotion and the improvement of citizen quality to combine, enterprises must innovate, traditional industries, traditional technology through technology innovation to achieve low carbon green is not possible, South Korea's experience also tells us, Norway's experience also tells us that should have scientific and technological innovation, technological innovation to the market to promote, not by subsidies. Fifth,China's experience combined the results of foreign experience and the organization of the United Nations; Such five combinations, our green low carbon target will be able to achieve sustainable development, to create the miracle, also must use us to show the world the wonders of newChina.
Li Junyang, vice-president and secretary general in his speech, in the face of increasingly serious environmental problems in China, need to seek solutions to common, especially innovative entrepreneurs work together hand in hand, will become a world conference on environmental construction field of economic and environmental sustainable development international think-tank platform, forming deep green, low carbon development to industry, promote the traditional industry to achieve energy conservation and environmental protection "unbounded" change, the energy conservation and environmental protection and traditional industries to form an organic one, traditional industries based on the energy conservation and environmental protection building, going green low carbon road, is also the trend of The Times, is also our common future.
As the backbone of social entrepreneurs, the need to speed up the building energy conservation and environmental protection innovation development pattern, in the face of increasingly strengthening resources and environment constraints, strengthen the consciousness of crisis and build up the idea of green low carbon development, improve the transformation mechanism of incentive, incremental, sustainability, speed up the construction of resource saving and environmental friendly mode of production and consumption patterns, enhance enterprise core competitiveness in the field of green sustainable development.
For businesses, green low carbon development road, need to have both a new set of operation mechanism, more in need of a changing the concept of development, transformation of the mode of operation, change management mode of the profound revolution. Need to establish and improve the internal operation mechanism, continuous innovation, change in the change, to gain a foothold in the fierce market competition, and get great progress, there's not a good environment, system and mechanism, it is a good idea also is a kind of good vision. Enterprise development to shift from the traditional rely on "resources" to rely on "science and technology elements", driven by the experience, knowledge upgrades to energy conservation and environmental protection as the core of the system, the whole life cycle design planning and implementation of production, consumption and market of the whole cycle, build a win-win economic benefits and social value system.
Li Junyang, vice-president and secretary general in his speech，entrepreneurs need to attach importance to and strengthen the industry think tank for the role of building energy conservation and environmental protection system, and give play to the age of the Internet information resource - sharing cooperation mode of thinking, the innovation of the value chain of economic market with the help of green finance, ecological financial capital leverage, to promote the industry development of energy conservation and environmental protection as the opportunity, going green low carbon development and enterprise economic benefits and win-win sustainable road, break the traditional thinking pattern, the energy conservation and environmental protection concept and technology, the model throughout the whole process of production and operation of the sales of the enterprise, the whole industry chain, the future will have the first mover advantage.
