Zhou Changyi, deputy director of the Environmental Resources Department of the national development and Reform Commission, pointed out at the circular economy development forum that the outline of the eleventh five year plan clearly puts forward the binding goal of reducing energy consumption per unit of GDP by about 20% and reducing the total emission of major pollutants by 10% during the Eleventh Five Year Plan period, which is a major measure to implement the scientific outlook on development and build a socialist harmonious society, It is not only the inevitable requirement of building a resource-saving and environment-friendly society, but also the only way to change the mode of economic growth.
Since last year, with the great attention of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, relevant departments and regional governments at all levels have put energy conservation, consumption reduction and pollution reduction in a more prominent position. The work intensity has been significantly increased, the energy consumption per 10000 yuan GDP has decreased, and the growth rate of major pollutant emission has slowed down. However, the targets set at the beginning of the year to reduce the energy consumption of 10000 yuan GDP by 4% and the emission of major pollutants by 2% have not been achieved. In the first quarter of this year, the growth of high energy consuming and high emission industries such as electric power, steel, building materials and chemical industry further accelerated, making the task of energy conservation and emission reduction more arduous this year. In order to further strengthen energy conservation and emission reduction and ensure the realization of the energy conservation and emission reduction goal of the eleventh five year plan, the State Council established a leading group for energy conservation and emission reduction, headed by Premier Wen Jiabao, Not long ago, a teleconference on energy conservation and emission reduction was held to carry out national mobilization and deployment. Recently, the State Council also issued a comprehensive work plan for energy conservation and emission reduction, which is to take comprehensive measures, use economic, legal and necessary administrative means to mobilize the efforts of the whole society to solidly promote energy conservation, consumption reduction and pollution reduction.
The key to achieving the goal of energy conservation and emission reduction is to reverse the economic growth mode of high input, high consumption and high emission. The fundamental way is to vigorously develop circular economy. Circular economy is a new development concept and growth mode. He combines economic development with resource conservation and environmental protection, and opens up a new way of comprehensive utilization and repeated use of resources. Make the best use of things, turn waste into treasure, improve the efficiency of resource utilization, and reduce environmental pollution emissions. Circular economy is the innovation and development of resource conservation and environmental protection. It is an important way for sustainable economic and social development and harmonious coexistence between man and nature
In recent years, the CPC Central Committee and the State Council have put forward clear requirements for the development of circular economy in the deployment of energy conservation and emission reduction. All regions and departments seriously implement the central decision and take measures to promote the development of circular economy from many aspects. The development of circular economy in China has made positive progress. Next, in order to promote cooperation with energy conservation and emission reduction and promote the achievement of circular economy as soon as possible, the national development and Reform Commission will further strengthen its work together with relevant departments to promote the development of circular economy and achieve results as soon as possible.
First, we should continue to deepen the pilot of circular economy, carefully summarize the experience of the first batch of pilot projects of circular economy, timely start the second batch of pilot projects, apply national debt funds to support the construction of a number of key projects of circular economy, further promote the pilot of recycling and treatment of waste household appliances in Qingdao and Zhejiang, and promote the remanufacturing of auto parts and engineering parts, Promote resource conservation and recycling in key mines and mining cities. Organize the preparation of circular economy promotion plans for key industries, and speed up the formulation and release of the evaluation index system of circular economy.
Second, focus on promoting the comprehensive utilization of resources, implement the guidelines for the comprehensive utilization of resources in the eleventh five year plan
