The Asia-Pacific Forum on Green Low-Carbon Development (Forum) brings together policymakers and technology developers to showcase global, regional, and country-level success stories in promoting the development deployment of low-carbon policies and technologies. This year’s theme is “Low Carbon Solutions for Our Green Future” and will support and promote cooperation and innovation on commercially scalable low-carbon solutions for green development in urban and rural areas. Luhui Yan, the CEO of Carbonstop, was invited to participate the "Low-Carbon Technology and Industrial Transformation" part to share the contribution that Carbonstop has made in low-carbon field. Now on its fourth year, the Forum was hosted by the Hunan Department of Ecology and Environment (DEE) and Asian Development Bank (ADB), organized by the Hunan Innovative Low-Carbon Center and Broad Group. It will be held on 16–18 October 2019 at the Broad Group Campus, Broad Town, Changsha, PRC. With the theme, “Sharing Low-Carbon Technology for a Blue and Beautiful Sky”, the main purpose of the Forum is to support and promote substantive cooperation in low-carbon city development and high-technology investment, while encouraging deep discussion among participants through parallel sessions, bilateral meetings, and technology roadshows.
Recently, carbonstop was invited by CCFA to update the website of China Retail Sustainable Consumption Platform (CRSCP). This platform was jointly launched by UNEP and CCFA. This update will optimize the pages and add some new functions. it will become more clear for the providers to understand the concept and policy of sustainable production and consumption, and also encourage the enterprises to provide consumers with sustainable products. Finally, these actions will build a green shopping concept and achieve jointly spread the concept with consumers. CRSCP aims to address challenges in professional knowledge, staff and resources in retail sector by providing tools and guidance on sustainable development strategies and governance for retail enterprises. On the other hand, CRSCP aims to lead the society transition towards sustainable pattern by promoting awareness and actions on sustainable consumption and production.CRSCP serves as the platform to assist, demonstrate and promote the UN-China Sustainable Consumption Partnership, and the implementation of the 10-Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns (10YFP) in China.
In September 2019, carbonstop helped Reclothing Bank calculate their carbon emissions reductions for fabrics and clothing made from recycled PET bottles. Reclothing Bank is a fashion brand founded by independent designer and founder of FAKE NATOO women's clothing brand in 2011. Reclothing, that is, the upgrading and reconstruction of old clothes; the bank refers to the mode of storage, circulation, and exchange that accepts used materials. Re-examine from the perspective of "redesign", use existing outdated materials, use the power of design to transform, regenerate, give old materials new life, and create timely new works. Remaking clothes banks is another option for treating the past. At present, Reclothing Bank cooperates with 1% FOR THE PLANET, a well-known American public welfare organization, to donate 1% of sales proceeds to public welfare projects for environmental protection in China. Every year, we will make public donation data on the website. Every penny here represents you like us who agree with "rejecting waste, recycling, fashion rebirth".
Recently, Alibaba Cainiao Logistics launched "green logistics indicator system" project to promote low-carbon development of logistics industry. Cainiao invited Carbonstop to calculate carbon emission reductions of a dozen of scenario, including electronic bills, carton reuse, encasement algorithm, green logistic park and so on. In addition, Carbonstop drafted the green logistics indicator system. Rapid development of e-commerce promotes increase of logistics industry. More delivery packages and longer transportation leads to higher carbon emissions. Cainiao is the long-term leader and pioneer of green logistics and sustainable development of logistics. For example, green package, green recycle, green city and green forest. This co-operation aims to quantify their contribution in green actions and let the consumers know what they can contribute. The low-carbon scenarios mainly includes reducing package, low-carbon material, increase recycling time and use clean energy. Every aspect is closely linked to Cainiao's business.
Carbon emission factors database is one of functions of Carbonstop mini-program "carbon intelligence", collecting data from different nations/regions and industry. Until 27 September 2019, the database has more than 46,000 data. the total visits reached 12,402 while the search reached 10697.The establishment of the carbon emission factors database is to fulfill the original purpose of building carbon footprints for the low-carbon industry. Therefore, an open, convenient and free data platform is established to enable more industries, companies and even individuals to understand carbon emissions and implement carbon reduction in the future .
