- Since 1978 China has been remarkably successful in reducing the CO2 intensity of GDP and industry. The book shows how China's industrial and technology policies affecting four energy-intensive industries - aluminium, cement, iron and steel, and paper - have transformed industrial structure within these industries and technological capabilities within enterprises in these industries, and how both types of changes have put each of these industries on substantially lower CO2 emissions trajectories.
