Lookout·Governance and Administration Chronicle丨Qilian Mountain “change of background color”
◆ Qilian Mountain Ecological Security, President Xi Jinping The secretary personally “proposed the question” and personally “accepted” it
◆ Under the concern of General Secretary Xi Jinping, Qilian Mountain has undergone “the most stringent” rectification, and has been cured for many years. The dark green background color changes
◆ The reporter has visited Qilian Mountains more than ten times and witnessed the over-exploitation accumulated over the years, such as permafrost peeling, gravel ruggedness, and sparse vegetation. Changes from “covering up” to “proactively revealing shortcomings”, from “guaranteing what is possible” to “resolutely shutting down”, from “making development” to “eliminating pollution”
◆ The ecological environment has improved for many years. Rare species that are hard to find frequently appear, and rare birds and animals that have disappeared for many years return.
◆ The ecological red line is the same as safe production, and it is the number one risk that investment must pay attention to. We must not ignore investment in environmental protection during economic construction, and make up for ecological debts during ecological rectification
◆ The Qilian Mountain renovation has become a “museum” and “textbook” for the scientific restoration and management of the ecological environment. However, there is still a long way to go from “dark green” to “evergreen”
◆ After the ecological environment of Qilian Mountains was renovated, the Qinling, Helan, Yangtze Rivers and other large mountains and rivers have started remediation, and the concept of landscape, forest, field, lake, grass, sand and ice system has been gradually improved. Landed and accelerated the establishment of a national park-based nature reserve system

Dark green: Development concept, green water and green mountains can become golden mountains and silver mountains”
Zhangye Julong Ferroalloy Co., Ltd., which has tasted the “sweetness” from environmental protection transformation, is preparing to invest an additional 17.8 million yuan in the upgrading of environmental protection facilities. . After this equipment is launched, Julong Ferroalloy’s environmental protection facilities will lead the industry.
This is a company that has “passed the board” due to environmental protection debts. In 2017, the company’s general manager Wen Bin was detained for criminal purposes due to the exposure of pollution issues. Since then, Julong Ferroalloy Company dismantled chimneys and installed monitoring, invested more than 13 million yuan, and determined to transform environmental protection facilities.
What Wen Bin did not expect is that under the high pressure of environmental protection, ferroalloy companies that are traditional high-polluting industries shut down one after another. However, Julong Ferroalloy sees “opportunities” in “danger” and takes it back the next year. All investment in environmental protection transformation has been reduced. Not only that, as a supplier of China Baowu Iron and Steel Group Co., Ltd., Julong Ferroalloy also passed the “Green Purchasing” assessment of China Baowu Group after completing the environmental protection transformation that year, and retained customers. Wen Bin said that the company expects to pay 30 million yuan in profits and taxes this year.
After the accountability storm for the rectification of the ecological and environmental problems in Qilian Mountains, Wen Bin and other business leaders said frankly: Investors have seen the determination of the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core to promote the construction of ecological civilization from the rectification of the ecological and environmental problems in Qilian Mountains. . They deeply realize that the ecological red line, like safe production, is the number one risk that investment must attach great importance to. We must not neglect environmental investment when we are engaged in economic construction, and make up for ecological debts when we are engaged in ecological rectification!
