Abstract

There is a long and difficult way ahead of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement. Human society needs to move fast and far on the road. Sustainable development can hardly be achieved by ostensible “reforms” and “transitions”. The only possible way is to upgrade and transform the industrial civilization to ecological civilization, in which man and nature, and man and society are in harmony, in an all-round and in-depth way. To preserve nature and improve the eco-environment is in essence to protect and boost productivity. The value of nature and ecological assets must be reflected in the System of National Accounts in a scientific and objective way. The lifestyle in developed countries and production mode in the developing world must be transformed. So far a global agenda for sustainable development has been in position, and China has obtained remarkable achievements in the construction of ecological civilization and low-carbon transformation. To realize the targets set in the Paris Agreement, institutional innovation and international cooperation prove essential.
