Textile industry has been playing an important role in the global economy development, international business and trade. In China, textile industry is a traditional pillar industry and an important livelihood industry. The proportion of textile industrial output on GDP has risen to approximately 7% in recent five years. Currently, the ever increasing amount of carbon dioxide emissions, which has been caused by anthropogenic energy consumption, seems to be aggravating the problem of global climate change. Through analysis of statistical data on many indexes, it showed that the total energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions increased more than double from 1980 to 2009. Though the consumption of primary energy sources shrunk during this period, coal is still the dominating energy source. The decrease of carbon employment rate (CER) in China’s textile industry was caused by the increase of industrial production efficiency of textile workers. However, this phenomenon exerts negative impact on development of green employment in the China’s textile industry.
