Pollution prevention and control has become one of the three critical battles to decisively build a moderately prosperous society in an all-round way.

  The essence of the "two mountains" concept is to scientifically grasp the dialectical and unified relationship between economic development and ecological protection, to achieve mutual promotion and benign interaction between the two, and to blaze a path of green development in practice. From digging mountains and "selling quarries" to protecting greens and "building golden nests", from shutting down "small chaos" to "high-precision", the development practice of various places has confirmed a simple and profound truth: economic development and Ecological protection is not an either-or "single-choice question", but a community of shared destiny in harmony.

This is an inevitable requirement for building a well-off society in an all-round way, and also for us to overcome difficulties and achieve high-quality development. only way.

  The prospects for transformation and upgrading are broad, and the world for green development is broad. In Yangzhou, Jiangsu, chemical companies have found new growth points through self-developed new energy projects; in Azha Township, Zanang County, Tibet, ecological poverty alleviation projects have driven more than 2,000 people out of poverty; in many places, the ecological industry has turned into a "cash cow" , The beautiful environment has become a "cornucopia"... Green development is not only a requirement, but also a way out. Only by adhering to green development and driving reform and innovation can we find a way to transform "green water and green mountains" into "golden mountains and silver mountains", and build a solid foundation for high-quality development and stimulate momentum.

  People live up to the green hills, and green hills will definitely live up to others.
