Besides Peking University, China University of Mining and Technology and Beijing University of Technology professors have taken part and committed to send additional faculty.

Several additional stakeholders from the government participated at different points of to evaluate the program and see what other Government functions could be fit to implement GPM standards into their units.

On the growth of GPM China, Executive Director Jesus Hernandez states that “the Chinese Government is taking the environmental challenges our world is facing and as these Universities are government affiliated, they have been given the mandate to implement GPM to mitigate the effects of climate change. “

In Support of the Chinese Government’s Environmental Goals

In 2016, a national guideline on environmental improvements was approved with the Chinese government focused on improving environmental protection and restoration to ensure a greener, more sustainable development, according to the new guideline for environmental protection during the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020).

The Chinese government has put environmental protection and restoration at the top of the agenda. As President Xi Jinping once said, “We should stay committed to the basic state policy of conserving resources, protecting the environment like we protect our eyes, treating the environment like it is our lives.”

GPM’s mission is to make the world a better place one project at a time, and the efforts of GPM China are essential to our ability to do this.  Our contribution to the Paris Agreement and commitment to Sustainable Development Goal #13, Climate action, have been strengthened with Beijing University taking the baton and running with it.
