The Role of Individual Lifestyle Change in Achieving Carbon Neutrality and Ways to Lead the Public to Participate in Carbon Neutrality

Abstract: Based on the concept and connotation of carbon footprint, this study studies the role of individual lifestyle in achieving carbon neutrality, proposes feasible plans to change individual lifestyle and methods to guide the public to participate in carbon neutrality, so as to provide scientific reference for reasonable decomposition of emission reduction responsibility. The epidemic and floods brought about by extreme climate change have seriously threatened human life and security. Reducing carbon emissions has become a pressing task for the construction of ecological civilization. Based on the fact that mankind is a community with a shared future, everyone should shoulder the responsibility of reducing emissions. At the same time, although various countries have introduced some relevant policies, but “it is difficult to change people’s way of thinking”, “residents lack of low-carbon awareness” and other problems still exist. Leading the public to participate in carbon neutrality is the only way to achieve carbon neutrality.

Keywords: Carbon emission; emission reduction; low-carbon life; public participation; individual carbon emission credit system.
