The 2014 China National Low-Carbon Day & 2nd Shenzhen International Low-Carbon City Forum will be held on 10-11 June, 2014 in Shenzhen. The National Low-Carbon Day was initiated by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) in 2013 and is an annual event to promote low-carbon development in China. Together with the event, the 2nd Shenzhen International Low-Carbon City Forum will also be held. The Annual Report of China Emission Exchange will be released during the event.

 

Themed “Low-Carbon Development: Quality-Based Urbanization”, the National Low-Carbon Day and the Forum will provide opportunities to understand China’s low-carbon development agenda and the new urbanization roadmap from both responsible policy makers at the central level and mayors at local levels, particular demands from local government leaders on their respective low-carbon development plans, and the opportunity to meet and establish contacts with the multitude of stakeholders in China’s billion dollar low-carbon development future.

 

Xie Zhenhua, Vice Chairman of National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), who is responsible for China’s national low-carbon development plan, has confirmed his participation in both events.

 

Over 500 leaders from government, industry, investors, academia, international organizations, business associations and media from over 40 countries will gather to discuss the new direction of the human-centered, environmentally-friendly and ecological urbanization path set by China’s State Council in March 2014 and its far-reaching economic and business implications.

 

Participants at the 2-day event are expected to have in-depth interactions in different formats over topics of effective approaches of low-carbon development and the new model of urbanization, the imperatives for economy, technology, policy and governance transformation, and the potential collaborative opportunities for cities and industries. Private bilateral meetings will also be arranged for concrete projects match-making purposes.
