Air Quality
December 8, 2023

China’s State Council has released an action plan aimed at improving air quality and promoting high-quality economic development. The plan outlines measures to achieve cleaner air by 2025, including green industrial shifts, a cleaner energy mix, and a low-carbon transport system.

The plan’s objectives include reducing PM2.5 density in cities at the prefecture level and above by 10% by 2025, compared to 2020 levels; limiting the proportion of days each year with heavy air pollution to 1% or less; and reducing emissions of nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds by over 10%.

Key areas identified in the plan include the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the Yangtze River Delta region, and the Fenwei Plain. The plan proposes banning new steel production capacities, accelerating the removal of outdated capacities in key industries, and promoting green industries.

The plan also emphasizes the development of new and clean energy, aiming for non-fossil energy to account for 20% of the country’s total energy consumption by 2025. The production and supply of natural gas will be increased, and new energy vehicles will constitute no less than 80% of new or updated buses, taxis, and other urban public transport vehicles in key areas.

The plan also calls for strengthened supervision and law enforcement, improved laws and policies, and expanded international cooperation on atmospheric environment management and desertification prevention and control.
