How can cement enterprises do well in carbon asset management under no clear policy?
In this year's Government Work Report, Premier Li Keqiang proposed to vigorously develop green finance. Green finance plays an important role not only in building green ecology, but also in improving China's financial system.
In this year's Government Work Report, Premier Li Keqiang proposed to vigorously develop green finance. Green finance plays an important role not only in building green ecology, but also in improving China's financial system. One of the innovative measures to develop green finance is to establish a national carbon trading market, thus forming a carbon finance system. In October 2016, the State Council proposed in the 13th Five Year Plan for Controlling Greenhouse Gas Emissions that China will launch the national carbon emission trading market in 2017. It is believed that the establishment of the national carbon emission trading market will push forward green finance.
The first quarter of 2017 is coming to an end. How is the construction progress of the national carbon trading market? According to the report of Southern Energy Watch, the national quota allocation work and the approval of the Regulations on the Administration of Carbon Emission Trading, which should be launched in October 2016, have not made substantial progress in the establishment of the national carbon trading market. An insider said, "It's like a game is about to start, but the player, game rules, duration, rewards and punishments are still unclear". From the information obtained in various places, except for a few early pilot provinces that have relatively perfect systems and measures, most of them have made slow progress, even a blank.
Even in the current seven pilot areas, there are still problems of one kind or another. The China Carbon Market Research Report 2017 released by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) points out that the common problems in various regions are mainly in system building, the legal support for carbon trading is generally weak, and the carbon market trading and most markets are characterized by low liquidity and low activity, At present, the market based price mechanism has not been formed; The transparency of the market is low, and emission control enterprises and investors lack confidence in the carbon market.
As a direct participant in the carbon trading market, should cement enterprises actively prepare for carbon asset management in the absence of clear policy guidance and specifications? Ma Ranqiu, the general manager of Shanghai Carbonhui New Energy Technology Development Co., Ltd., who is engaged in the optimization of enterprise carbon asset management in China, said that it is necessary for cement enterprises to take precautions. She pointed out that it is very important to strengthen the construction of the enterprise's own carbon emission management system, which is what many enterprises and scholars have not paid attention to at present, which also determines whether enterprises can reduce costs in this regard after the establishment of the national market. She predicted that the carbon quota of enterprises would be released after July this year, and before that, enterprises should actively respond and "practice their internal skills". Because the carbon quota will not be issued in full according to the quota given by the third-party measurement institution, only when enterprises attach importance to it, can the scientific establishment of the system not consume more cost to purchase the quota.
Although there are a series of problems that need to be solved urgently, as stated in the Joint Statement of the Heads of State of China and the United States on Climate Change, China will start the national carbon emission trading system in 2017. How should cement enterprises manage their carbon assets to enter such a new market. On March 23-25, Ma Ranqiu, the general manager of Shanghai Carbonhui New Energy Technology Development Co., Ltd., will come to the 2017 annual meeting of China Cement Network to talk to the guests about how cement enterprises establish their own carbon emission management system under the current carbon market.
