Chongqing enterprises get “carbon footprint authorization”

Chongqing Ruipu Cable Co., Ltd. takes the head in getting the carbon footprint authorization of products awarded by China Quality Certification Centre recently. The carbon footprint of products means the total quantity of carbon dioxide of products released during the production cycle. The carbon footprint authorization has been a significant condition to get international orders.

As one of the first low-carbon pilot cities, Chongqing has not yet made the carbon footprint authorization a mandatory provision. But plenty of enterprises have made positive attempt in the field, according to Chongqing Administration of Quality and Supervision.

Besides, Chongqing Administration of Quality and Supervision will start the relevant authorization of low-carbon products, and hopes to see further promotion and production of low-carbon products.
