Green Development and Chinese Innovation

(People's Daily Online)

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao gave a speech of his three points of views on promoting sustainable development at Stockholm+40 International Conference on Sustainable Development on 25 April, 2012.

He stated that China should strive to develop green economy, ensure everyone equal rights of environment, stick with green development and enhance global governance of sustainable development. Hu Angang, director of the Centre for China Stud and Professor of School of Public Policy and Management of Tsinghua University, thinks that “black development” is basking in forefather’s glory, cutting off offspring’s supply, self-benefiting and harming others.

In contrast, sustainable development shall not leave sequel for offspring and externality for other countries. And green development entails that the effort of current generation shall benefit offspring as well as human beings globally in a long-lasting way. The Communist Party of China has originated and practiced “scientific development” globally known as “green development”.

China will assume the role of starter, innovator and leader in the green revolution and build up its concepts on nature, civilization and development on theme of green development. The green development is not only an “innovation in an old state” what China, an old civilization needs to undertake, but also the largest strategy opportunity for China in the 21st century.

Green Development derives its theoretical source from the concept of “unity of nature and human” during the thousand-year history of China, the Marxist dialectic of nature that is traced back to one hundred years before and the contemporary theory of sustainable development.

The pattern of taking a green development road is new and combines economy, society and ecology together. It is characterized by reasonable consumption of goods, low consumption of resources, low emissions and growing amount of eco-resources. It is based on a method of green innovation, targeted at aggregation of green wealth and enhancement of green profit and aimed at the realization of harmonious relationship between different people as well as between human and nature.

The 12th Five-Year Plan that is released last year is the first plan on green development in China, and also the beginning of China’s process of green modernization in the first half of the 21st century. The process of green modernization is a new type of interpretation of the Chinese road. Green development is the way to open up an era of eco-friendly civilization, a new path that is exploded and led by China, brand new values and developing ideas and essentially the scientific development.
