Abstract：Plants are the only natural ecosystem that is capable of sequestering carbon from the atmosphere, and its ability to mitigate climate change and improve the quality of human life is far from fully understood. Bamboo, as one of the fastest growing plants in the world, has great carbon sequestration potential and can be sustainably used with single planting. The whole life cycle of bamboo from photosynthesis through growth, harvesting, product manufacturing and friendly utilization to decomposition and release is the whole process of carbon sink or carbon sequestration, namely the carbon footprint of bamboo. The carbon sink of bamboo forest usually studied only involves the growth stage of bamboo forest, while the role of bamboo products in emission reduction as well as the link between the product and emission reduction has been often ignored. It is necessary to carry out systematic monitoring and research on the whole process of bamboo carbon footprint, to improve the connotation of bamboo sink and correctly understand the law of carbon cycle. Under the theoretic guidance of bamboo carbon footprint and with the policies implemented, it is of great significance to enhance the regular and all-amount bamboo harvest by ensuring the growth of bamboo forest, to increase the production of forest products, to prolong the carbon sink time by improving the lifespan of bamboo forest, to promote the efficient utilization of bamboo resources for income increase and slower process of carbon emission and to regulate the whole life cycle for ensuring the coordination and synergy development of all parts. The implementation of the bamboo carbon footprint concept is of great academic and practical value in systematically understanding bamboo forest sink, guiding the healthy growth of bamboo forest, improving the product yield and quality, promoting the development of the whole bamboo industry chain, and reducing the carbon emissions.
