Textile industry is a high energy-consuming industry, which depends on oil, coal and other energy resources. This paper takes Guangdong textile industry as case study and analyses its current carbon emission from the statistical yearbook. Chinese textile industry should transform and develop a low-carbon economy model. Firstly, the government should strengthen the top-level design and improve the relevant legal system. Secondly, new energy and renewable materials needs to be vigorously explored to save energy. Thirdly, the textile enterprises must speed up the industrial transformation and upgrade to enhance the added value in the industrial chain. Finally, consumers are required to update their concept of low-carbon consumption. These ways are helpful to ensure the minimization of “carbon footprint”. Only by developing a circular economy and low-carbon economy, can we build a resource-saving, environment-friendly and low-carbon-oriented society.
Key words: Low Carbon Economy / Textile industry / Transformation and development / Circular economy / Energy
