Opportunities and challenges brought by carbon tariffs to the paper industry

carbon tariffs sound beautiful because of its green name, but now it has gradually become a new green barrier in the trade market. Levying carbon tariffs is a violation of the norms of the World Trade Organization (WTO, even if the crude steel production capacity will be reduced by 150 million tons after five years). If carbon tariffs are imposed, what will it mean for China's paper industry to automatically return the movable beam to its original position at a high speed? The 10th Guangzhou International Paper Exhibition 2013 (hereinafter referred to as Guangzhou Paper Exhibition) is for you to interpret one by one

impact on China's paper industry

internationally, the European Union, the United States and Japan have all proposed that developing countries, including China, will pay the treatment cost of carbon dioxide emissions through carbon tariffs in the future. Many scholars believe that the paper industry is one of the industries greatly affected by carbon tariffs

domestically, China is a large country in the import and export trade of paper products, but it has been in a trade deficit until 2010, from trade deficit to surplus. Due to technology, mechanical performance, equipment and other reasons, the sensory and physical and chemical indexes of all 18 batches of paper products purchased from both places in China are in line with national standards, production energy efficiency is low, and carbon emissions are high. Europe, the United States and Japan account for the largest market share in China's paper products exports and are highly dependent on them. However, these countries are most likely to impose carbon tariffs. If Europe, America and Japan impose carbon tariffs, it will have a great impact on the development of China's paper industry and export competitiveness. Firstly, the export cost will increase and the export volume will decrease. Secondly, the terms of trade will deteriorate and the international competitiveness will be weakened

opportunities and challenges coexist, where to go

recently, China Green Times interviewed Wang Xuemei, an associate professor of Beijing Forestry University, on the interests of carbon tariffs on China's paper industry. Professor Wang believes that the collection of carbon tariffs has more opportunities than challenges for the overall development of the paper industry, and can promote the transformation of the development mode of the industry, which is also in line with the overall national development strategy

it is worth mentioning that the impact of carbon tariffs on exports showed a downward trend from 2001 to 2010, which may be due to the continuous improvement of China's papermaking technology. This shows that only by continuously carrying out technological innovation and vigorously developing low-carbon papermaking technology can China's paper industry meet the challenge of carbon tariffs. In this regard, as a landmark business platform of the paper industry, Guangzhou International Paper Exhibition, as early as the seventh exhibition, comprehensively displayed new products and technologies of environmental protection and low carbon in the paper industry, which caused a huge response in the industry at that time. At that time, it cleared the fog of the industry and allowed many enterprises to find new directions in time

while environmental protection is increasingly concerned, the upgrading and updating of the paper industry has attracted much attention. The 10th China Guangzhou International Paper Exhibition, held at Poly World Trade Expo in Pazhou, Guangzhou on August, 2013, will focus on low-carbon products and advanced equipment at home and abroad, and jointly discuss where the paper industry will go and how to deal with it under the sharp edge of policies
