Shanghai to hold first international low carbon technology exhibition in April
China will hold the first international low carbon technology exhibition in Shanghai next month,which seeks to commercialize low-carbon technologies to boost sustainable development, authorities said on Saturday.
China had pledged that by 2030 carbon emissions per unit of gross domestic product will drop 60-65 percent from the level in 2005, “which requires efforts from the whole society rather than merely the government, including collaboration among companies and universities,” Li Peng, executive chairman at the Low-carbon Economics Committee of China Electronic Energy-saving Technology Association, said.
“The exhibition will be held every year in Shanghai, (which) acts as a bridge to link professionals and companies worldwide to help commercialize low-carbon technologies,” he added.
The 2018 (First) China International Low Carbon Technology Expo will feature seven themes of climate change, green building technology, low-carbon cities, low-carbon equipment, low-carbon Internet of Things technologies, new energy and green manufacturing.
Seven conferences will be held as part of the event to address issues such as “green” manufacturing and “green” cities development, with experts and officials from the National Development and Reform Commission, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Shanghai authorities taking part, Li said.
A total of 147 companies have signed up for the exhibition which will take place at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center (at Exhibition Hall 4) from April 22 to 26, Li said.
