Recently, the Founding Conference of China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products (CCCME) Green and Low-Carbon International Cooperation Committee (hereafter called the “committee”) and the 1st Carbon Neutrality International Cooperation Forum were successfully held. The committee has implemented the goals of peaking carbon dioxide emissions and carbon neutrality and motivated member enterprises to conduct international cooperation in green and low-carbon fields.

CMEC and 67 industry pacesetters at home and internationally have become council members of the first committee. The committee will carry out government-enterprise dialogue, industry exchanges, matching of upstream and downstream enterprises, information sharing and financial cooperation to boost the green, low-carbon and sustainable development of key industries in China and beyond.

CMEC has always adhered to the concept of green development and made a host of achievements at home and internationally. In formulating its 14th Five-Year Plan, it has also proposed to deepen the concept, facilitate green project management, reduce pollution and carbon emissions, and make a big push for their sustainable operation.

By the end of 2020, CMEC had built hydropower projects with a total installed capacity of more than 4,600 MW, PV stations with a total installed capacity of 1,144.5 MW, wind power plants with a total installed capacity of 206.5 MW, garbage power plants with a total installed capacity exceeding 50 MW, and biogas power plants with a total installed capacity of over 4.8 MW in 26 countries and regions across the world.
