The risk control and restoration of soil pollution is an important task to ensure public health and promote the sustainable use of soil resources. Encouraging and guiding the implementation of green and low-carbon risk management and restoration (GLRMR) is a specific action to implement "coordinating industrial structure adjustment, pollution control, ecological conservation, climate-change addressing, promoting carbon reduction, pollution reduction, green expansion, growth, and promoting ecological priority, conservation and intensification, and green and low-carbon development". It is also an urgent need for the green and low-carbon transformation and development in the field of soil restoration. In order to accelerate the GLRMR, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment of the People’s Republic of China has organized the drafting of the "Guiding Opinions on Promoting Green and Low Carbon Risk Control and Restoration of Soil Pollution (Draft for Suggetions)" and issued a notice on June 26th, publicly soliciting opinions from society.
