This project generates an array of sustainability outcomes, beyond just carbon not being released from the project area’s carbon stocks

The project helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and local air pollution, such as SO2 and dust, as well as helping reduce fossil fuel consumption.

The project has provided local people employment opportunities, helping improve their living conditions.

The project has helped improve the local power system’s infrastructure and promotes increased utilisation of renewable energy.

The vegetation in the area of the project is very sparse and there are no rare endangered species, so the project construction had little impact on the diversity of local fauna and flora.

On the basis of the geomorphology, natural environment and construction method, and with the aim of minimising any negative impacts, the project owner framed a series of measures to optimize the construction and to take measures to recover the vegetation.

Stakeholders were consulted and the local community provided positive comments on the proposed project.  They believed that there would contribute greatly to local economic and sustainable development.
