工业和信息化部国家发展改革委 生态环境部：工业领域碳达峰实施方案Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, National Development and Reform Commission, Ministry of Ecology and Environment: Implementation Plan for Peaking Carbon Dioxide Emission in the Industrial Sector
The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Development and Reform Commission, and the Ministry of Ecology and Environment recently jointly issued the “Implementation Plan for Peaking Carbon Dioxide Emissions in the Industrial Sector”. The Plan sets the overall roadmap for peaking carbon dioxide emissions in industrial sector before 2030, and clarifies the direction and the major works on green and low-carbon transformation of the industry.
The plan requires that by 2025, the energy consumption per unit of added value of industrial enterprises above designated size will be reduced by 13.5% compared with 2020. The Plan proposes six key tasks, including adjustment of industrial structure, further promotion of energy conservation and carbon reduction, active promotion of green manufacturing, vigorous development of circular economy, acceleration of industrial green and low-carbon technological transformation, and promotion of digital transformation in the industrial field, aiming at establishing a modern industrial system featuring high efficiency, greenness, recycling, and low carbon.
The Plan also proposes two major actions: peaking action for key industries and improving the supply of green and low-carbon products. The key industries will focus on the seven major industries of iron and steel, building materials, petrochemicals, non-ferrous metals, consumer goods, equipment manufacturing and electronics, to formulate the specific carbon peaking plans by industrial sectors and implement accordingly. The Green and Low-Carbon Product Action will explore the development of carbon footprint accounting for industrial products, and encourage companies to use self-declaration or voluntary certification to publish green and low-carbon product lists.
The Plan also focuses on the construction of the legislation system to improve the supporting systems related to carbon peaking in the industrial sectors. At the same time, it leverages economic policies and market-oriented means and utilize tax policy to promote the construction of carbon emission rights, energy use rights, and electricity trading markets. The market-based incentive mechanism will be gradually improved, to motivate enterprises to participate in energy conservation and carbon reduction.

Ministry of Ecology and Environment: Rules for Marking Automatic Pollutant Emission Monitoring Equipment
The Rules are applicable to pollutant discharge units that are obliged to install, use and maintain automatic pollutant discharge monitoring equipment in accordance with the law, and linked to the monitoring system of the environment authorities. The Rules are set to instruct the pollutant discharge unit to mark invalid data generated by automatic monitoring equipment in the event of failure, maintenance, debugging, etc., to determine whether the data is valid.
According to the Rules, data marking can replace stamped paper reports, providing a channel for polluters to plead in a timely manner, greatly improving the efficiency of remote analysis and judgment of the environment authorities, and thus reducing unnecessary disturbance to pollution discharge units.
