Hi, all!
I came across a sentence in Chinadaily. I just can't catch the usage of "in a move that" and its meaning. The word "Move" here is kind of a decision or a change?

The capital will raise its automobile emission standards on Feb.1, making them the strictest in the nation in a move that the Beijing Environmental Protection Bureau said is expected to reduce auto pollution by 40 percent.

Thank you!
