Published on

China’s new leaders have declared ecological progress as a top national priority. Billions will be spent on measures to reduce energy consumption and to lower the country’s carbon intensity. Already a world leader in renewable energy development and deployment, China is reaching out to the world both as a purchaser of key commodities and as a supplier of technologies, consumer products, and investment capital. China also has a significant appetite to grow its intellectual capital and domestic technology innovation capacity. Developing China’s economy while responding to increased environmental and quality of life goals present both challenges and opportunities for global suppliers. These sessions in this theme explore the many dimensions of the new China and our shared future.

LESSONS FROM THE ROAD: CHINA’S JOURNEY TOWARDS SUSTAINABILITY
China’s Twelfth Five-Year Plan (2011-2015) and other government policies have set ambitious targets for greener growth and greater social stability in rural and inland areas. While many of these targets have yet to be achieved, China has already become one of the world’s largest market forces for renewable energy deployment due in part to the central government’s commitment to improving the country’s environment. With the next Five-Year Plan due to begin, what opportunities does China’s environmental policy landscape create and what exactly are China’s environmental policy priorities? Interact with those who are helping China complete its long journey toward sustainability.

GLOBE 2014 Theme: China - Our Shared Future

  1. 1. Conference theme and Sessions CHINA – OUR SHARED FUTURE China’s new leaders have declared ecological progress as a top national priority. Billions will be spent on measures to reduce energy consumption and to lower the country’s carbon intensity. Already a world leader in renewable energy development and deployment, China is reaching out to the world both as a purchaser of key commodities and as a supplier of technologies, consumer products, and investment capital. China also has a significant appetite to grow its intellectual capital and domestic technology innovation capacity. Developing China’s economy while responding to increased environmental and quality of life goals present both challenges and opportunities for global suppliers. The sessions in this theme explore the many dimensions of the new China and our shared future. Lessons from the Road: China’s Journey towards Sustainability China has set ambitious targets for greener growth and greater social stability. While many goals have yet to be achieved, China is now one of the world’s largest markets for renewable energy deployment. What other opportunities will China’s new environmental policy landscape create and what exactly are China’s environmental policy priorities? Interact with those who are helping China complete its long journey toward sustainability. BUILDING CHINA’S GREAT CITIES China’s great cities are undergoing unparalleled growth and redevelopment to accommodate increased economic activity and a growing middle class population. However, many cities in China suffer from poor air quality and congestions. How can domestic and foreign solution providers lend a helping hand? Hear from those leading the charge to make China’s great cities cleaner and healthier.
  2. 2. ENERGY – POWERING SUSTAINABLE GROWTH IN CHINA China’s need for coal, oil, natural gas, and other energy resources has led it to the far corners of the world to lock up supplies in order to meet present and future needs. While China is busy importing resources from around the world, the country is one of the largest markets for renewable energy, especially for solar and wind technologies. Learn why energy partnerships with China are good news for buyers, sellers, and for the world in general. A SUSTAINABLE CHINA IN A SUSTAINABLE WORLD Repairing China’s damaged waterways, agricultural lands, and urban areas will cost over $400 billion, straining the resources of national and state authorities that might better be used to move China toward the more resilient and ecologically sensitive economy it desires. Learn why helping to green China is also a way to green the entire world. Clean Energy Trends – What’s driving the Industry Forward? Now in its 13th edition, Clean Edge’s Clean Energy Trends report is one of the most respected cleanenergy publications. Based on this year’s expanded research, a stellar panel of business and investment innovators will share insights on the current status, trends, and future directions of renewable energy supply and storage, green buildings, energy efficiency, and clean transportation.
