1. China is undergoing a phase of development featuring industrialization coupled with rapid urbanization. With its heavy reliance on coal as a major source of energy, China has become the world's biggest CO2  emitter. Yet, in terms of per capita emission, China still lies far behind the developed countries. So, it is fair that China should bear a common but differentiated responsibility for reducing global carbon emissions;
2. Saving energy in traditional industries while developing cyclic economy is the first step towards green development; developing advanced manufacturing technologies and employing the Internet of Things will make a breakthrough in achieving green development;
3. Readjusting the energy structure while advancing nuclear and renewable energy sources will lay a solid foundation for a low-carbon economy for green development;
4. Promoting low-carbon, energy-saving lifestyle is a sure guarantee of achieving green development.
