"Many industries that serve as China's economic pillars are large carbon emitters, such as steel, nonferrous metals, chemicals and construction materials. It is crucial to use innovations to help those industries become greener and more sustainable."

"Developing recycling economy is of great importance in the pursuit of the goals of carbon emissions peaking and subsequent carbon neutrality. Among them, re-utilization of solid waste as useful resource is a key direction."

"Achieving the carbon goals will require innovations in the clean use of fossil fuel, improvements in the production of renewable energy and its integration into the national grid, promoting the use of safe nuclear energy, and creating large-scale energy storage technologies."

"We hoped to cooperate with overseas counterparts to provide richer monitoring data to cope with climate change. The design and development of the new-generation carbon satellite have been put on the agenda to meet the country's carbon reduction commitment."

"Planting productive mixed forests to restore ecosystem services is an urgent global need, and high productivity means high tree growth and high carbon storage, which help to reduce greenhouse gases and at the same time provide shelter and protect biodiversity."

"China has no easy route to carbon neutrality. Numerous uncertainties remain, and the road ahead will be constructed along the way, through reforms and trial and error. China should approach the task as an opportunity to 'learn by doing'."

"This is an ambitious but extremely difficult strategic goal. As far as my country is concerned, the cumulative carbon emissions per capita is much lower than the major developed countries and also smaller than the global average. Our pursuit of carbon neutrality by 2060 is far more difficult than developed countries."

"A stringent climate target requires substantial deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS), but this would require significant investment, CCS would allow China to continue using some coal-fired power in the long term."

"For achieving peak carbon emissions and carbon neutrality, it is important to make an overall plan aiming at the establishment of a clean, low-carbon, safe and efficient energy system. Together with breakthroughs in key technologies, we could promote national energy revolution based on successful regional energy revolution demonstration, for resolving systematic energy problems."
