According to the Jiangsu Ecological and Environmental Protection conference on February 19, Jiangsu Province has set “ten goals” to protect the environment for 2020, which include increasing the number of days with good air quality, protecting the clear water and unpolluted land, optimizing the ecological structure, strengthening environmental law enforcement, promoting co-governance of the environment, etc.

To be more specific, the PM2.5 concentration in Jiangsu Province shall be controlled below 43 micrograms per cubic meter in 2020, and the days of good air quality shall take up 72% of the whole year.

In 2019, the ecological environment of Jiangsu improved significantly, with the best air and water quality in five years. Jiangsu also has made the most substantial improvement among the Yangtze River Delta regions, who have achieved the carbon reduction target of the thirteenth Five-year Plan one year in advance.

This year, Jiangsu will prioritize the readjustment of industrial structure, energy structure, transportation structure, and land-use structure to improve the ecological environment. The government will establish a long-term mechanism against air pollution by measures such as controlling the coal consumption, eliminating the diesel trucks, reducing the dust raising, preventing the ozone pollution, and promoting low VOC coatings.

What’s more, Jiangsu will launch a pilot project of “Green Island” to help small and medium-sized enterprises reduce costs and solve problems in the pollution reducing. The Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment will provide support in the environmental review and approval, funding arrangements, technical guidance, and assessment awards to promote the integration of policy and reformation as well as further save resources and reduce operating costs.
