Release Date:

On April 28, 2022, the Chamber of Commerce for Machinery and Electronics Industry held the third Export Products Green Development Forum and Green Low-carbon Innovation Dialogue online. With the theme of "Improving the Green Attributes of Export Products and Assisting the High-quality Development of Enterprises," the conference invited think tanks, financial institutions, and leading enterprises to discuss how to help companies deal with green barriers from different perspectives. Nearly 400 people watched the event live.

In his speech, Vice Secretary-General Bai Xuefeng pointed out that China's major trading partners have accelerated the construction of the legal and regulatory system for green development. Topics such as green economy, sustainable development, and circular economy have become important factors affecting international trade. In the future, this will bring severe challenges to our country's exports, and promoting green development in foreign trade is an inevitable requirement to deal with "green barriers." The Chamber of Commerce for Machinery and Electronics Industry will help green trade development by continuously building an information exchange platform in the green export field, promoting the green development of the entire industry chain of machinery and electronics, and actively promoting the establishment of a green standard system for the industry.

At the meeting, Dr. Liu Zhe, Director of Research Data Innovation at the Beijing Representative Office of the World Resources Institute, interpreted the development trends and response strategies of the green economy in key industries. Financial institutions such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and Carbon Trust introduced green financing channels such as the Global Green Technology List (GTS). Dow Chemical introduced its development path of lightweight packaging, circular economy, and energy efficiency improvement to empower product green attributes. Schneider Electric shared its experience in green product design and sustainable development, and experts from the national-level Economic Development Zone Green Development Alliance discussed how to reduce carbon emissions in the production and manufacturing process to help enterprises improve their green competitiveness. After the guest speeches, Deputy Secretary-General Yang Tong and Deputy Secretary-General Zhang Jing of the Chamber of Commerce had in-depth discussions with the guest speakers on how to establish a comprehensive life cycle carbon footprint evaluation system for machinery and electronic products and enhance the green development capabilities of enterprises.

This exchange meeting is another innovative dialogue series event held by the Chamber of Commerce's Green Low-carbon International Cooperation Committee after the Hydrogen Energy Development Cooperation Seminar, closely following the hot topics of green trade and receiving unanimous recognition from participating units. In the future, the Committee will continue to uphold the concept of openness, innovation, cooperation, frontier, and internationalization, continuously build cooperation platforms for industry exchanges, government-enterprise dialogues, and technological innovation, and help China achieve its "double carbon" goal. More member units are welcome to join.
