BJUT always keeps its eyes on cutting-edge issues in environment protection. The Chinese government announced at the 75th session of the UN General Assembly on September 22nd, 2020 that“China will scale up its Intended Nationally Determined Contributions by adopting more vigorous policies and measures. We aim to have CO2 emissions peak before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060.” BJUT will also contribute its expertise to attaining the vision, and the goal of building Beautiful China.
With a view to the “policies and technologies for achieving the peak & neutrality goal”, BJUT has made major breakthroughs in areas such as energy and climate policy research, material life cycle assessment, the control of GHG and other pollutants, green building technologies and low-carbon, environment-friendly materials. These have laid a solid foundation for BJUT’s scientific research in environment protection.
In 2016, BJUT established the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Green Development Institute to share expertise with other universities and colleges of the region, removing obstacles to the green development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei.

Moreover, BJUT founded the Institute of Technological Innovation for Urban Carbon Neutral and held an academic seminar themed on “Innovation in Urban Carbon Neutral Technology”. These efforts have made for the integration of useful resources from multiple disciplines and for more breakthroughs, representing BJUT’s contribution to Beijing’s peak & neutrality goal.
