BEIJING, July 16 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Han Zheng attended a ceremony initiating the trading in the national carbon market Friday in Beijing.

Han, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, announced the official start of the trading at the main venue of the ceremony, which was held via video link.

Branch venues of the ceremony are in Hubei Province and Shanghai. Hubei will lead the building, operation, and maintenance work of the registration system of the market, while Shanghai will lead work related to the trading system.

The market is a major institutional innovation to control and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote green and low-carbon development through market mechanisms. It is also an important policy tool to promote carbon peak and carbon neutrality.

Carbon emissions by more than 2,000 power companies involved in the first trading group are estimated to exceed 4 billion tonnes per year, making the market the world's largest in terms of the amount of greenhouse gas emissions covered.

新华社北京7月16日电国务院副总理韩正16日在北京出席全国碳交易市场启动仪式。


作为中共中央政治局常务委员会委员,韩寒在仪式主会场通过视频直播宣布了交易正式启动。


开幕式分会场分别设在湖北省和上海。湖北将牵头市场注册制度的建设、运营和维护工作,上海将牵头交易制度的相关工作。


市场是通过市场机制控制和减少温室气体排放,促进绿色低碳发展的重大制度创新。这也是推动碳峰值和碳中和的重要政策工具。


据估计,参与首个贸易集团的2000多家电力公司每年的碳排放量超过40亿吨,使该市场成为全球温室气体排放量最大的市场。
