CCICED launched the SPS in 2018, which has carried out relevant research on the strategies and policies for the China's green consumption transformation, including how to promote green lifestyles and consumption patterns, and improve the sustainable social governance system, during the key window period of China's consumption upgrading. In the next two years, the SPS intends to extend to the production side based its previous study on the consumption side, thus to explore how green production and consumption can serve to the transition to high-quality development; deepen and refine last year's research outcomes, and make them operational, thus to better integrate it into the national 14th Five-Year Plan.
