As an important market-based emission reduction tool, the carbon market plays an important role in China’s ability to meet its “30·60” goal1. Deeply analyzing the evaluation system of the carbon market in Fujian province is of great reference value for other regions when formulating carbon exchange policies. This paper aims to analyze the evaluation index system of the carbon market based on the analytic hierarchy process (AHP)-fuzzy comprehensive evaluation model and the development level of each factor in the environmental energy exchange platform in Fujian province. The results are as follows: (1) the evaluation results of the exchange platform are at an average level. There are significant differences in the level of internal indicators in the carbon market. Therefore, multi-dimensional efforts should be made to promote the operational effect of the carbon market. (2) The evaluation results of some indicators are at a poor level of excellence, such as the exchange rules, measurement work, and professional management personnel, which are important factors affecting the operation effect of the carbon market. Based on the above findings, this paper proposes several suggestions in terms of enhancing the influence of platform, setting convenient exchange rules, establishing a standardized and effective carbon financial system, and establishing an effective mechanism to improve the skills of professional personnel.
1The “30.60” target refers to China’s response to climate change by promoting the reduction of greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide. China has proposed that its carbon dioxide emissions should peak by 2030 and that it should become carbon neutral by 2060.
