Program: By-Product Synergy EcoPartnership Initiative

Partner: China Business Council for Sustainable Development

Date Established: May 2012

In June 2011, the China Business Council for Sustainable Development ("CBCSD") and the US Business Council for Sustainable Development ("USBCSD") established an EcoPartnership program, which is an effort organized under the US-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue. This EcoPartnership, which strengthens an existing bi-national partnership between CBCSD and USBCSD, will focus on energy and environmental challenges facing both countries. One goal of the EcoPartnership is the development of By-product Synergy ("BPS").

BPS is the matching of wastes and under-valued resources at one facility with potential users at another – the results include reductions in operating costs, improved environmental performance, increases in energy efficiency, reductions in CO2 emissions, and job creation and retention. Successful implementation of BPS not only benefits the participating companies and organizations but also the communities in which the project located.

As a member of CBCSD, ConocoPhillips China is collaborating with CBCSD in a regional BPS project in the Bohai Bay area. ConocoPhillips China has donated USD 600,000 (RMB 3.78 million) toward a program to implement BPS projects in the Bohai Bay area.

By working with CBCSD on the BPS projects, ConocoPhillips China strives to support sustainable urban development by facilitating best practices for waste management, urban infrastructure design, water supply and conservation. The goals of the BPS projects are to help local businesses manage their resources utilization and disposal (which when successful provide major cost benefits), and to bring long-term environmental benefits to communities in Bohai Bay.

Through participation in BPS projects, ConocoPhillips China also hopes to strengthen the relationship and cooperative spirit between China and the US in promoting sustainable development. The synergy effort, organized under the EcoPartnership program, seeks to bring together groups of companies, and the resulting circular economy network produces results. This framework will allow companies in China to collaborate on new business and market opportunities, share resources and best practices, and develop joint projects. The USBCSD developed the framework and has a 15-year track record of successful BPS projects. Those projects demonstrate that collaborative projects can grow in value over years or even decades, generating economic returns while improving the environment and society.

CBCSD is a coalition of leading Chinese and foreign enterprises registered and operating in China as a national organization, established through the Ministry of Civil Affairs of the People’s Republic of China. It provides a platform for exchange and cooperation among Chinese and foreign enterprises, government and social communities; sharing information, experiences and best practices in the field of sustainable development, to push forward the course of sustainable development in the world by common efforts.
