One person riding a bike sharing “China Story” at the UN Climate Change Conference to reduce carbon by one ton

At 8:30 a.m.

on weekdays, Mr.

Jiang from Chongqing will skillfully sweep a shared motorcycle to work at his home.

He said that sharing electric bikes is the most convenient and efficient way to travel four or five kilometers from home to the company.

Since the sharing of electric bicycles, he almost no longer drives to work, which is not only low-carbon travel, but also avoids traffic jams and parking problems.

As more and more cities introduce shared bicycles and motorcycles, more and more citizens like Mr.

Jiang choose green travel.

With the deep integration of shared bicycles and electric bicycles with urban life, such “low carbon” lifestyles have become daily trips for citizens.

In the context of the global response to climate change, such a “China story” has increasingly entered the international arena.

In March this year, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted a resolution calling on Member States to “integrate bicycles into public transport” to address climate change.

The resolution encourages Member States to “pay special attention to cycling in cross sectoral development strategies, including sharing bicycle services”.

On November 11, Beijing time, as a representative of China’s bike sharing enterprises, the delegation shared the “Chinese story” of bike sharing and e-bike carbon reduction at the United Nations Climate Change Conference.

China is at the forefront of the world in the development and promotion of shared bicycles and motorcycles.

Since 2016, the popularity of shared bicycles and e-bikes has effectively remedied the pain points of short and medium distance travel and become an effective supplement to public transport.

Nowadays, sharing bicycles and motorbikes have become a new trend of low-carbon life, covering counties and even towns from first tier cities.

It is estimated that the total number of shared bicycles and motorcycles in China has reached 22 million, providing 50 million rides for citizens in more than 800 cities every day.

Among Meituan’s e-bike users, 36% are the “new generation” of low-carbon travel.

They have changed their previous commute mode dominated by private cars and more choose to share e-bike commutes.

At the same time, local governments are exploring the management mode of sharing motorcycles.

Taking Kunming as an example, the local competent department, adhering to the principles of “inclusiveness and prudence” and “first try, first try”, has carried out refined management on the sharing of electric bicycles through continuous exploration to create a “Kunming model”.

Meituan data shows that the carbon reduction of Meituan electric bicycle in Kunming in the past year has reached 14600 tons, ranking first among the electric bicycle cities.

It is reported that the proportion of green travel in the central urban area of Beijing has reached 74%, and the cumulative number of bike sharing has reached 601 million person times since this year.

The green travel services provided by shared bicycles and motorbikes have gradually made low-carbon travel a way of life.

Qin Hao, director of Meituan Transportation Sustainable Development Center, introduced at the United Nations Climate Change Conference that each cycle of users will generate corresponding carbon emission reductions According to the latest data of Meituan Xiaohuangche, the replacement rate of high carbon travel of shared bicycles and e-bikes has reached 23% and 36% respectively, with an increase of 5% compared with last year.

The carbon reduction effect of shared e-bike is more significant.

The carbon reduction amount of a Meituan e-bike in the whole cycle is nearly 1 ton.

▲ Citizens ride bicycles and share bicycles to experience the “slow” life of the city Photographer: Jijia 02 advocates low-carbon travel, and the whole people participate in the “one ton carbon reduction by one person riding” action.

In recent years, many places throughout the country have continuously optimized the slow travel environment and increased the proportion of green travel.

The report of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China pointed out that we should accelerate the green transformation of the development mode, implement the comprehensive conservation strategy, develop green and low-carbon industries, advocate green consumption, and promote the formation of green and low-carbon production and lifestyle.

This year, the Publicity and Education Center of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, together with the United States Mission, launched the “one ton carbon reduction by cycling by one person” action to encourage more people to travel in a low-carbon way.

Up to now, more than 500 people across the country have achieved the small goal of one ton carbon reduction by cycling.


Ma in Fuzhou is a loyal user of shared bicycles.

By riding shared bicycles, he has reduced carbon by nearly 2 tons, which is equivalent to riding around the equator.

According to him, “In the past, it was just convenient to ride a bike, but now the country advocates carbon neutrality.

Sharing a bike allows me to directly participate in it, and I feel very satisfied with the carbon reduction that has been accumulated.” It is noteworthy that more and more cities are also continuing to build cycling friendly cities to create a safe, comfortable and convenient cycling environment for residents.

During the “Fourteenth Five Year Plan” period in Beijing, all roads with a road width of 12 meters or more within the Fifth Ring Road will be provided with bicycle lanes, and 21 cultural and tourism cycling routes “strolling through Beijing” are planned to be built, supporting services such as bicycle stations and tour guide maps will be provided to guide and encourage citizens and tourists to “slow travel” in the capital.

Hefei South Railway Station has set up a special parking place for sharing bicycles, so that passengers can get off the high-speed railway and travel seamlessly with sharing bicycles.

At the same time, the “15 minute life circle” has been built in many parts of the country.

In addition to walking, sharing bicycles and motorcycles has become the main way for residents to travel.

By riding, people can experience these small and beautiful 15 minute community life circles, not only more and more colorful life at home, but also improve their sense of happiness through green and low-carbon travel.

Sheren Zorba, Director of the Secretariat of the Science Policy and Business Forum of the United Nations Environment Programme, said: “The vigorous development of shared bicycles and shared electric bicycles in China is a practical example of the concept of” action brings change “.

Enterprises provide users with low-carbon travel methods through technological and mode innovation, and drive the public to practice low-carbon life.

The government optimizes the travel structure and reduces travel carbon emissions by building a sound slow traffic infrastructure and good policy environment..
