As the country readies for start-off trials on low-carbon projects, eight cities and five provinces have been chosen to lead the pilot project, according to a notice on the website of China's National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) Tuesday.

The five provinces: Guangdong, Liaoning, Hubei, Shaanxi and Yunnan, and the cities : Tianjin, Chongqing, Shenzhen, Xiamen, Hangzhou, Nanchang, Guiyang and Baoding, will have their carbon emissions reduced considerably in the largest-ever campaign of the kind.

The selected batch, will create low carbon development plans, establish relevant supporting policies, step up efforts to build a low carbon industrial system, establish a carbon-dioxide output statistics management system, and promote a 'green life' and consumption model.

"This is the first time the Chinesegovernment implements an actual emission-reduction-related program, rather than just emphazising about in documents and files. China now will step on the low-carbon road," Dong Xiucheng, vice head of the School of Business Administration of the China University of Petroleum (CUP), said.
