According to China's 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-2025), the energy consumption per unit of gross domestic product (GDP) and carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP will be reduced by 13.5 percent and 18 percent, respectively, over the period. The country aims to expand forest coverage rate to 24.1 percent of China's total land area over the next five years.


The blueprint for the country's economic and social development shows the determination of the world's largest developing country to accelerate green development.


Green development is a path that China must travel to realize socialist modernization. A complete economic and societal shift to cleaner energy and lower polluting emissions conforms to the Chinese people's expectations for high-quality development.
