Abstract: In order to overcome the environmental degradation and energy crisis caused by the rapid industrialisation process, the profit model design and development strategy of Industry 4.0 under the concept of green and low-carbon are proposed. Through the macro, meso and micro levels of green and low-carbon concept, this paper analyses the low-carbon operating conditions of Industry 4.0, determines the development process of low-carbon elements in the performance evaluation of industrial system; introduces carbon management and development of carbon industry, respectively designs relevant profit models; on the premise of ensuring the performance of industrial products, it advocates energy-saving behaviour, attaches importance to guiding behaviour design, and gives full play to it. The function of high technology prolongs the service life of products. We should implement the green and low-carbon principle, and formulate comprehensive development strategies for promoting the construction of ecological civilisation and industrial progress.

Keywords: green and low-carbon concept; Industry 4.0; profit model; development strategy; ecological civilisation construction.
