Second, strictly control the expansion of production capacity of the high pollution and high energy consumption industries
Third, vigorously promote clean production and public transport to achieve reduction of the main atmospheric pollutants emission by 30% or more to the end of 2017.
Fourth, accelerate the adjustment of energy structure, increase clean energy supplies such as natural gas and coal methane.
Fifth, strengthen the constrain effectiveness of the energy-saving environmental indicators by disapproving projects which can not pass the environmental evaluations.
Sixth, enhance the pollution charge collection, strengthen international cooperation to cultivate environmentally friendly and new energy industries.
