Recently, the China-Germany low carbon product certification cooperation was signed in Beijing, which was the first foreign cooperation program for China's Ministry of Environmental Protection in the field of low carbon product certification.

Developing the low carbon product certification is a lead in policy practice of "low-carbon label" which may result in trade barriers toward China in the future, showing the determination and efforts of China on controlling greenhouse gases. With reference to the development model of foreign low-carbon product certification, the Ministry of Environmental Protection decided to carry out low carbon product certification within the China Environmental Labeling System.

That means in accordance with the original Chinese environmental labeling certification system, the products passing through the certification are awarded by China Environmental Label in order to show such products' active role in reducing carbon emissions and protecting the climate.
