The China Greentech Report 2014: “Greener, Smarter, More Productive”

Beijing, China—The China Greentech Initiative (CGTI) today released The China Greentech Report 2014: Greener, Smarter, More Productive, the fifth in a series that was first launched at the World Economic Forum in 2009. This year’s report is sponsored by DP CleanTech; Parkview Green and RTI International.

Increased awareness in China of the need to tackle pollution and improve the quality of life in Chinese cities is driving some significant changes in policy. The Report contends that to maintain a national GDP growth target of 7.5% through 2014, Chinese economic policy must be accompanied by an equally resolute vision for cleaner growth. Building on the new approach outlined in last year’s report, the latest edition offers a path forward for China to adopt a greener, smarter and more productive model of development.

CGTI Co-Founder and Managing Director Elle Carberry explained: “The words, ‘greener, smarter, more productive’ describe the kind of capabilities, technologies and operational expertise that need to be brought together to tangibly achieve China’s green growth.”

The 2014 report asserts that there is a profound opportunity for leading companies to integrate their products and services to customize replicable solutions for China’s project owners and governments in the areas of industrial efficiency, distributed energy, greener buildings and cleaner mobility.

Since the release of the first report, China has emerged as an innovative driver of greentech industry development; and is fast becoming a hub for more productive practices and implementation that can be profitably adopted by global industry stakeholders. The report outlines ambitious new central and local government plans for pollution reduction; and highlights how forward-thinking companies can use innovative technologies, best practices, and global collaboration models to accelerate China's sustainable growth.

DP CleanTech CEO Simon Parker illustrates this further, highlighting that “At DP CleanTech, we are longstanding proponents of the need to promote and develop collaborative, cross- border solutions and working practices to improve technology performance and improve long term profitability in the biomass industry. 10 years of adopting this approach in China has yielded profitable, industry changing solutions and our China business and resources are now an integral part of our global solutions as we expand into the African and South and Central American markets.”

He added “Our belief is that the next phase of development in the global biomass industry must be underpinned by intelligent resource sharing and genuine collaboration in order to deliver and implement the most efficient and flexible biomass solutions. DPCleanTech is both prepared and uniquely positioned to facilitate this approach in all of our markets.”
