Report on the Implementation of the Second Round of Provincial Ecological Environment Protection Supervision and Rectification of Yulin City

From July 14 to August 7, 2021, the fourth provincial ecological environment protection inspection team (hereinafter referred to as the inspection team) conducted the second round of provincial ecological environment protection routine inspections on Yulin City. On September 8, 2021, the inspection team provided feedback on the inspection to the Yulin City Committee and the municipal government. In order to comprehensively complete the second round of provincial ecological environment protection routine inspection feedback rectification tasks, further improve the level of ecological civilization construction and environmental protection, and promote the continuous improvement of the city's ecological environment quality, according to the Notice on Issuing the "Yulin City Ecological Environment Protection Inspection Report" (Shaanxi Environmental Protection Supervision Office [2021] No. 37), our city has formulated the "Yulin City Implementation of the Second Round of Provincial Ecological Environment Protection Inspection Report Feedback Rectification Plan" (hereinafter referred to as the "Rectification Plan"), which has combed out 43 issues. As of now, 31 rectifications have been completed. The implementation report is as follows:

Always bear in mind the "national big picture" and resolutely shoulder the political responsibility for ecological environment protection:

Fully implement Xi Jinping's ecological civilization thought. The Yulin City Committee and the municipal government adhere to the guidance of Xi Jinping's socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics for a new era, thoroughly implement Xi Jinping's ecological civilization thought, give priority to ecological and green development, and propose to work hard in ecological environment protection. The rectification of feedback problems from the second round of provincial ecological environment protection inspections is regarded as a major political task and important livelihood project. The important speeches and instructions of Xi Jinping's ecological civilization thought and General Secretary Xi Jinping's inspection in Shaanxi have been incorporated into the theoretical learning of the Yulin City Committee and the municipal government. Eight centralized learning sessions have been organized. The role of the Party School (Administrative College) as the main training ground has been continuously played, and Xi Jinping's ecological civilization thought, as well as a series of provincial and municipal policies, decision-making deployments, and laws and regulations related to ecological environment protection, have been included in the content of the main class learning, further enhancing the sense of responsibility and consciousness of leaders at all levels in the city to do a good job in ecological environment protection and solidly promote ecological civilization construction.

Resolutely shoulder the political responsibility for ecological environment protection. Strictly implement the party and government's joint responsibility for ecological environment protection and double responsibility for one post. Set up a leadership group for inspection and rectification work with the main leaders of the Yulin City Committee and the municipal government serving as dual leaders to command and supervise the inspection and rectification work. The main leaders of the Yulin City Committee and the municipal government have effectively fulfilled the responsibilities of the first responsible person for inspection and rectification, and have held 37 meetings, including the Standing Committee of the City Committee, the Executive Meeting of the Municipal Government, and special promotion meetings to study and deploy rectification work. The main leaders and leaders in charge of the city and municipal government have personally taken the lead and directed them in front, and the leaders on duty have conducted research and inspection every week to effectively promote the rectification of problems from the provincial environmental protection inspection. The "Rectification Plan" has been formulated to clearly define the goals, measures, deadlines, responsible units, and acceptance units one by one, and to progressively strengthen the rectification responsibility, effectively promoting the implementation of rectification.

Comprehensively promote the implementation of rectification tasks. According to the requirements of strict rectification goals, strict rectification measures, strict responsibility transmission, strict rectification cancellation, strict supervision and accountability, not letting go of unclear reasons, unresolved problems, inadequate accountability, unimplemented rectification measures, failure to establish long-term mechanisms, and societal dissatisfaction, we will concentrate efforts to overcome difficulties in accordance with the "Rectification Plan" and continuously promote the establishment of a sound long-term mechanism. The key tasks of supervision and rectification will be included in the city's task list for pollution prevention and control, and a "five-one" work mechanism will be implemented. The municipal government's responsible comrades in charge will check the rectification work once a week and hold a progress meeting once a month. The municipal party committee and government's main responsible comrades will hold an environmental work evaluation meeting every quarter, and the supervision and rectification work will be included in the evaluation report content. An environmental problem investigation will be carried out every six months, and an environmental protection work assessment will be conducted at the end of the year. Strengthen scheduling and management, strictly check progress and supervise results, and take key supervision measures such as letters, interviews, etc. Issued the "Several Provisions for Further Strengthening Ecological Environment Protection Work (Trial)" and the "52-Item Action Plan for Ecological Environment Protection in Yulin City in 2022". Based on achieving full coverage of municipal ecological environment protection inspections in 2021, the ecological environment protection inspection feedback and rectification work will be included in the city's 2022 inspection and assessment plan.

Strictly implement ecological environment protection supervision, assessment, and accountability. Make ecological environment protection an important content of the annual target responsibility assessment for counties, cities, districts, and municipal departments, use public satisfaction with the ecological environment as a major subjective evaluation content for high-quality development in counties and cities, and use assessment results as an important basis for assessing the leadership team and leading cadres. Strengthen the use of assessment results, and do not give commendations or awards to the main responsible comrades and responsible comrades in charge of the county, city, and district who fail to complete the annual target tasks and rank last. For those who are not resolute or thorough in implementing the responsibility system for ecological civilization construction and environmental protection as well as those with strong public feedback, the main responsible comrades of the units will be interviewed, and they will be required to conduct a profound inspection to the municipal party committee and government. All four problem clues transferred by the inspection team have been processed, with one person receiving a major demerit, two people receiving administrative warnings, seven people receiving admonitions, thirteen people receiving reminders, and one person and seven units being ordered to conduct written inspections.
