Using the data collected from 420 companies in energy intensive sectors that would be included in the national ETS, this paper examines company preparation for the national ETS in China. The results show that ETS pilot companies have an overall better awareness and higher ability in carbon management. While non-ETS pilot companies seem not be able to prepare properly for the national ETS. They need further training on the basics of an ETS. For all the sampled companies, further training should focus on the MRV method, data quality management, strategic management and advanced low-carbon technology. It is highly likely for the samples to conduct self-mitigation if the carbon price is as high as 2 times of the abatement cost. The analysis provides reference for the smooth introduction and effective implementation of national carbon market in China from the business viewpoint.
