Persistently fight the battle of pollution prevention and control, deeply promote the three major defense battles of blue sky, clear water and pure land, and promote the continuous improvement of the quality of the ecological environment. Accelerate the green and low-carbon transformation of development methods , thick planting the green background of high-quality development. Strengthen ecological protection and restoration, and strive to improve the diversity, stability and sustainability of ecosystems. Actively and steadily promote carbon peaking and carbon neutrality, and accelerate the planning and construction of a new energy system. Improve relevant laws and institutional systems, improve economic policies for green and low-carbon development, and continue to modernize the ecological environment governance system and governance capacity. Adhering to the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind, we actively participate in global environmental governance and strengthen international cooperation in the fields of climate change, marine pollution control, and biodiversity conservation.
