In the next 5 to 10 years, the situation in China had to make business act. “World Wide Fund for Nature (China) Energy and climate change projects, said Chen Dongmei, director,” low-carbon development requires long-term perspective, enterprises do not act now and will be forced to act. “
Low-carbon economy is being more and more countries as the future economic growth, while the textile industry has been a green economy and practice of those who were fans. Recently, we have many problems on a low carbon economy interviewed Chen Dongmei, director.
Reporter: At present, many companies are keen on developing a “low-carbon economy”, but often remain at the conceptual level, such as the textile industry, some companies have been doing energy conservation alone, businesses to understand exactly how the development of “low-carbon economy” ?
Dong-Mei Chen: The textile industry is now a national low-carbon development planning of key industries, energy saving and emission reduction should be considered mainstream, but is also reducing pollution and energy companies doing some limitations, for example, there may only be concerned about power consumption of the situation , and in the overall layout is not particularly detailed and complete, in particular executive orders often are good business, their awareness of energy saving is relatively weak, completed, done by outside experts report on energy concluded the project could will form a very short, flat, fast emission reduction effect, but this is only a temporary effect.
Emission reduction projects in the energy business after completion of the works will take some diagnosis by diagnosis by specific recommendations, such as the time in the procurement of raw materials need to pay attention to what led to the production of products more or less carbon; in-house production process , the need to pay attention to what the key steps or components; also need to have appropriate systems to collect important data, according to the relevant information, management can push the old year Chen, and consider whether to go down, walk it supply chain.
Reporter: Development of low-carbon economy on textile enterprises in international trade and market development will have what effect?
Chen Dongmei: Exports in the textile industry in a high proportion, Europe and the United States attaches great importance now coke content, the textile industry want access to their markets, certainly can not be avoided, the current carbon tax policy is widely used in export products, the product needs of the carbon base data, if the enterprise has no such data, does not meet the standards.
Global trade is based on the original dumping and anti-dumping as a trade fight, are now sounding the carbon standard could become a tool for the free flow of trade, in order to maintain industry growth and position in the international market, the textile industry, with particular attention to the content of the carbon component now done a lot of energy saving business work, but to some of their transformation, such as clean the outside experts, including the consumption of energy in the process of monitoring, according to the carbon footprint of standards and procedures do change, give simple example: in the production of T-shirts out of the top label on to illustrate this t-shirt production consumed a total of several tons of carbon zero, if such a data is the development of the industry made a great contribution to low carbon.
Reporter: At present, the company developing low-carbon economy is facing the greatest difficulties and bottlenecks where?
Chen Dongmei: the biggest problem is inadequate capacity.
Inadequate capacity in two aspects, firstly, technology, mainly refers to the number of soft technology, and now, although business related equipment can not be considered the latest global, but in many areas is considered a relatively good, while the soft, especially carbon emissions assessment and monitoring system for the building, including the timely and effective information disclosure and how to better link with the market rules in such areas as capacity weak.
On the other hand is that the leaders of decision-making and awareness in China, many companies are focusing on technology and refers to hard technologies, such ideas would easily lead to soft technology companies ignored the acquisition, for example: If you have a consulting firm to to find companies that can provide soft services will be 80 percent of enterprises have doubts, however, if a company sold the business to a patented technology, can improve the efficiency of 10% is attitude is different.
The value of this kind of consulting services in Europe and the United States is recognized. Consciousness-changing needs of such a process, now part of China, there are some consulting firms have this capability, can help businesses to do some diagnostics, and improving the soft skills required.
Reporter: low-carbon economy is now the core business development What is the mandate?
Chen Dongmei: We are talking about low-carbon economy, “economic” is the core, low-carbon is a modifier key or how to help low-carbon samples to enhance their core competitiveness, therefore, whether the assessment is made of carbon or production supply chain management, are out of order for production of higher value of each product, the value of the dollar reflects the same product in its energy consumption is minimal.
From the practical point of view, what business can do more, including basic design and the equipment inside, if not put in place internal management operations are likely to make good technology is not effective, there is the purchase of raw materials, post-sales and all other aspects are to pay attention to energy consumption and carbon emissions factors. Enterprises do not put additional burden on low-carbon development into, once they come after an additional burden, even temporarily to complete the task, but continue to promote in-house is difficult to obtain supportive.
Reporter: At present, financial support for the development of low-carbon economy mainly from what? The future financing of this investment will also have to expand what?
Chen Dongmei: Now, energy conservation, the state will have incentives, but carbon is not specific to particular clear message that the additional subsidies. Now, well, low-carbon businesses may also be a way through the market mechanism to sell their products not finish the task of enterprise energy saving, which is the industry is exploring a exchange.
Low-carbon development in the future also has considerable access to multiple investors, the possibility of global climate change negotiations there are two important issues pieces, of which one is the transfer of a piece of that funding, the relevant agencies have been urging the developed countries show a certain percentage of GDP to support low-carbon development capacity building in developing countries, to do some joint research and development and market update, if this will become clear and can be operational with the words, for most Chinese enterprises is the gospel, but kind of negotiated funding more open and transparent, they are mostly of low-carbon projects for the public.
In addition, there are already some banks, such as the World Bank, Asian Bank, as well as cooperation between the Government of aid projects, the potential opportunity of financial support their mouths, but such opportunities were a cost, companies must understand the information, need to track can be achieved.
