REFIRE Group Makes the List of Pacemaker Enterprises at the 1st Chinese Industry Carbon Peaking Forum 2022


Recently, the 3rd Forum on Coordinated Development of “Belt and Road” Initiative and Manufacturing Power Construction and Chinese Industry Carbon Peaking Forum 2022 (hereinafter referred to as the “Forum”) was held. The head of Chinese Industry Carbon Peaking Project Team of China Federation of Industrial Economics introduced the research findings on pacemaker carbon-peaking industrial enterprises in China in 2022 and released the List of Pacemaker Enterprises at the 1st Chinese Industry Carbon Peaking Forum 2022. REFIRE Group made the list by virtue of its hydrogen technology, state-of-the-art products and solutions, achievements in zero-carbon operation and outstanding performance in fueling transformation towards green development.

At the Forum, Li Yi, former Minister of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and president of China Federation of Industrial Economics, put forward some suggestions on issues of concern in implementing the policy of “carbon peak and carbon neutrality”. He specifically mentioned that it’s necessary to further analyze industrial carbon emissions, develop insights into carbon footprint, vigorously adjust and optimize energy structure, adopt and adjust policies according to the industry and local conditions, and fully perform the responsibilities of all industries related to carbon peak and carbon neutrality, while keeping promoting scientific and technological innovation and application vigorously, strengthening international exchanges and cooperation, and striving for international discourse power.

In 2022, China Federation of Industrial Economics invited more than 280 leading enterprises in the industry to roll out study on pacemaker carbon-peaking industrial enterprises in China together with relevant departments, local governments and industry and think tank experts. Through quantitative data and indicator analysis and qualitative data research, as well as combining with on-site representation and expert questions, the study aims at summarizing and refining experience and achievements, looking for excellent technologies and cases, and carrying out studies on common problems from such aspects as enterprises’ capability of transformation towards green and low-carbon operation, core actions and achievements of green development, level of green and low-carbon technologies, products and solutions.

The study project lasted 9 months. Totally 42 excellent enterprises, including 13 state-owned enterprises, 12 local state-owned enterprises and 17 private enterprises/joint ventures, stood out due to their leading role in green development.
