The Chinese government for the first time has said publicly that it will cap carbon dioxide emissions from two major polluting industries, but its impact on the nation’s overall climate change mitigation remains unclear.

The announcement was made in a guideline published Tuesday by China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the country’s top economy planner. The State Council, China’s Cabinet, approved the guideline in September, but its full content was made public only earlier this week.
