Top five trends and ten new trends of 2017 annual

  • Detail

Annual inventory of the environmental protection industry in 2017 - the year 2017 is a key year for the environmental protection industry. It is a node year for the promotion of environmental governance and a year for the release of various policies. In this year, what changes have the environmental protection industry received much attention and what kind of agitation has it experienced? What new trends and characteristics will the environmental protection industry show in 2018? There were many changes in the environmental protection industry that attracted much attention in 2017:

the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, proceeding from the original intention of the party, once again emphasized the construction of ecological civilization from the height of the five in one, and wrote the concept of "green water and green mountains are golden mountains and silver mountains" into the party constitution, pointing out the direction for future environmental protection development. Accordingly, in terms of policies, on the one hand, we should strengthen environmental protection supervision and law enforcement, and create fairer development opportunities for law-abiding and compliant enterprises and a better environment for the people by increasing the cost of environmental violations; On the one hand, the environmental protection tax was implemented, the 13th five year plan was issued, and top-level means such as law and planning were used to guide the healthy and accelerated development of the environmental protection industry. In action, we continued to promote the "three campaigns" of water, solid waste and air pollution control, and won the first battle of the blue sky defense. For the PPP market boom and capital development, the state has promoted market regulation through various means, and PPP development has changed from incremental Carnival to focusing on quality and regulation; In the general environment of financial contraction, while the IPO is speeding up, the supervision is more strict. In terms of market, the era of environmental effects is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people; The demand for comprehensive environmental protection services is obvious, and the market segmentation is increasingly intensified; The field of hazardous wastes has attracted much attention because of its urgent treatment; Because of the comprehensive demand, the environmental sanitation market has become a trend; The development of water environment treatment has entered a difficult period because of the difficulties of performance assessment and other effects

on the whole, the environmental protection industry showed the following new features and trends in 2017, and will continue to develop in 2018:

first, the construction of ecological civilization is more firm, and how to implement the "two mountains theory" is the difficulty.

the 19th national congress highly emphasized the original intention of the party, and the Communist Party of China always represents the fundamental interests of the overwhelming majority of the people. As an important part of the five in one, the construction of ecological civilization reflects the fundamental concern of the overwhelming majority of the people. Adhering to the harmonious coexistence between man and nature and building ecological civilization is the millennium plan for the sustainable development of the Chinese nation. Based on the CPC's strong theoretical self-confidence, road self-confidence, system self-confidence and cultural self-confidence, China now has the confidence to promote the establishment of an ecological value consideration system

"two mountains theory", as the guiding ideology and realization path of ecological civilization construction, reveals the problems in the three development stages of green water and green mountains, golden mountains and silver mountains, and analyzes the relationship between environment and economy in the evolution process. In the report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, it was emphasized that the concept of "green water and green mountains are golden mountains and silver mountains" must be established and practiced. At the same time, the concept of "two mountains theory" has been written into the new party constitution. In 2017, the exploration of the national implementation of the "two mountains theory" was significantly accelerated and achieved remarkable results

the conference in Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shandong and Shaanxi will also touch on the research and related utilization of five major engineering plastics. All parts of the country have responded to the implementation of the "two mountains theory" exploration. On September 21, 2017, the Ministry of environmental protection and Zhejiang announced to jointly build a Zhejiang sample of beautiful China. At the National On-The-Spot promotion meeting of ecological civilization construction, the Ministry of environmental protection named 13 regions including Anji County, Zhejiang Province as the first batch of "green water and green mountains are golden mountains and silver mountains" practice and innovation bases, which set a benchmark for other regions in the country to promote the construction of ecological civilization and played an important demonstration and leading role

e20 Research Institute under E20 environment platform, as a national think tank, has been exploring, studying and implementing the practice path of "green water and green mountains are golden mountains and silver mountains". Since October, 2016, E20 Research Institute has rooted in a city for the first time and conducted in-depth investigation in Huangshan, Anhui Province for more than a year. As the first watershed ecological compensation pilot in China, Huangshan Xin'anjiang watershed management has made good exploration and experience summary. Through two rounds of pilot projects, the Xin'an River Basin has achieved both environmental and economic benefits. In 2017, the first Xin'anjiang green development forum was held, focusing on the construction of ecological civilization and jointly discussing hot topics such as the future realization path of ecological civilization construction. At the same time, E20 environmental platform is also actively exploring and practicing the green development of steel industry and paper industry in Handan, Dongguan and other places

II. The environmental protection management mode has been optimized in great strides. Under high pressure, all subjects have been put back in place.

while the country has strengthened its confidence in environmental protection and increased its investment in environmental protection, it is also constantly innovating and optimizing the environmental protection management mode

the central environmental protection supervisor, from being led by the environmental protection department to being led by the central government, has changed from focusing on inspecting enterprises to "focusing on both inspection and supervision and focusing on supervising government", which is regarded as a major change in China's environmental supervision mode. On december28,2017, the Ministry of environmental protection introduced at a regular press conference that the first round of central environmental protection inspectors had achieved full coverage in 31 provinces across the country, accepted more than 135000 letters and visits from the masses, imposed a total of 29000 penalties, fined about 1.43 billion yuan, filed 1518 cases for investigation, detained 1527 people, interviewed 18448 party and government leading cadres, and held 18199 accountable, showing unprecedented strength

under the high pressure of environmental protection inspectors, many places have truly implemented the same responsibility of the party and government for environmental protection, and strengthened the awareness of local party and government organizations on environmental protection. Many places regard the central environmental protection supervision as a good opportunity and driving force to promote green development and supply side structural reform. They take this opportunity to strengthen pollution prevention and control of enterprises, internalize environmental costs, and provide law-abiding enterprises with a fairer competitive environment. In particular, they renovate scattered, disorderly and polluting enterprises, which has better solved the prominent problem of "bad money expelling good money" in some places. In addition to the pollution discharge permit system, which started in 2016 and gradually deepened in 2017, environmental protection inspectors have moved from "a gust of wind" to normalization, and a new round of national environmental protection supervision action is about to begin

in combination with the original intention of the policy, environmental protection management pays more attention to public participation and information disclosure while being strict. For example, in the field of waste incineration, the formulation of the three tasks of "installation, construction and association" by the Ministry of environmental protection has greatly enhanced the recognition and trust of the people in the waste incineration industry and promoted the work process of comprehensive and timely disclosure of monitoring information

if the enforcement of environmental protection actions such as environmental protection supervision is strengthened, the system construction at the level of laws and regulations can achieve more long-term results

at the legal level, at the end of 2016, the environmental protection tax law was issued, which stipulates that it will be formally implemented from January 1, 2018. In 2017, in order to ensure the smooth implementation of the tax law, Premier Li Keqiang signed the regulations on the implementation of the environmental protection tax law of the people's Republic of China promulgated by the order of the State Council. It specifically defines the tax exemption and reduction of the environmental protection tax law, and stipulates the collection and management of environmental protection tax on the basis of the environmental protection tax law. In order to strengthen the power of local environmental protection governance, all environmental protection taxes are owned by the local government. At present, most provinces in China have determined the specific tax amount, and various preparations before the environmental protection tax is being steadily and orderly carried out. It is predicted that the annual collection scale will reach 50billion yuan

as the presentation of the future blueprint, at the end of 2016, the State Council issued the 13th five year plan for ecological environment protection, which became the starting point of environmental protection in the new five years. In 2017, the Ministry of Environmental Protection announced the "13th five year plan" for the development of national environmental protection standards. It is planned that during the "13th five year plan" period, about 300 environmental protection standard preparation and revision projects will be launched, as well as 20 projects to solve key and common problems in the preparation and revision of environmental quality standards and pollutant emission (control) standards, such as compliance determination, emission accounting, etc., and about 800 environmental protection standards will be issued. Subsequently, all parts of the country successively issued the detailed rules for the development of ecological environmental protection in all provinces and cities during the 13th Five Year Plan period, planned the future path and development blueprint, and generally focused on the comprehensive treatment of water environment, rural environmental improvement, air pollution prevention and control, providing important help for the implementation of the national 13th five year plan. According to the estimation of the Ministry of environmental protection, the investment in environmental protection during the "13th five year plan" period is expected to increase to about 2trillion yuan per year. The total investment in social environmental protection during the "13th five year plan" period is expected to exceed 17trillion yuan, which will be more than twice that during the "12th Five Year Plan" period. The environmental protection industry has ushered in a high-speed development period

the three campaigns continue to advance, and whether the environmental effects can be continuously implemented

after the release of the three major ten articles of gas, water and soil, the three campaigns have become important environmental protection actions in parallel with environmental protection supervisors. The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China once again put forward that we should focus on three aspects: atmosphere, water and soil. At this key node in 2017, the three major campaigns were continuously promoted. As the closing year of the first phase of the State Council's ten atmosphere articles, the "2+26" air pollution prevention and control in Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei and surrounding cities, the most stringent in history, was strengthened, that is, the blue sky defense war was officially launched: air pollution control ran through the whole 2017 - a one-year period with 5600 participants, and the "largest scale environmental protection supervision in history" was promoted in "2+26" cities; 10 ministries and commissions, 6 provinces and municipalities jointly implemented comprehensive air pollution control in autumn and winter, and set a "military order" for haze control in the heating season for the first time; The clean heating work in the northern region has been carried out in an orderly manner. Measures such as bulk coal control, oil upgrading, production suspension and production restriction have been taken in a multi pronged manner...

as of October 2017, the proportion of air quality days in 13 cities in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei has changed from 36.5% to 69.2% on average; In the 25 cities in the Yangtze River Delta, the average number of days to reach the standard has changed from 73.5% to 93.8%; In nine cities in the Pearl River Delta region, the proportion of days with air quality reaching the standard has changed from 90.3% to 73.1%. On December 10, liganjie, Minister of environmental protection, said that the "ten articles on the atmosphere" ended the year. From the current situation, it is expected that all the important goals set will be achieved. From January to November 2017, the average concentration of inhalable particulate matter (PM10) in 338 prefecture level and above cities nationwide decreased by 20.4% compared with the same period in 2013, and the average concentration of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in Beijing Tianjin Hebei, Yangtze River Delta and Pearl River Delta decreased by 38.2%, 31.7% and 25.6% respectively

behind the series of digital improvements is the deepening of environmental protection measures. From reaching the standard to being excellent, it means that the confidence to win the "blue sky defense war" is rising, and the first battle is won

in terms of soil pollution control, on June 27, 2017, the 28th meeting of the Standing Committee of the 12th National People's congress reviewed the law of the people's Republic of China on the prevention and control of soil pollution (Draft) (the second revised draft was issued at the beginning of this year), which is the first separate law in the field of soil pollution prevention and control formulated at the national level. Including Shandong, Zhejiang, Liaoning, Jiangsu, Shenzhen and Hebei
