Get The Facts About Chinese Pollution Before You're Affected
If you're involved with manufacturing, you should know that pollution in China has become a very hot topic politically and socially.
While China is in no rush to step away from being the 'World's workshop,' it's important for manufacturers to understand the facts surrounding pollution there; in particular manufacturing sector pollution.
It's no secret that pollution is bad in China, especially in areas with intensive manufacturing such as Dongbei, the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei area, Shanghai, and the Pearl River Delta in Guangdong.
'Environmental sustainability' is having a serious impact on the manufacturing sector in China, as President Xi seeks to improve conditions in the country. Most types of manufacturing causes some kind of pollution, although hardest hit by new pollution laws are traditionally 'dirty' verticals such as petro-chemical, mining, smelting, paint production, and similar.
So, is your industry or wider supply chain in the government's cross hairs?
If it is, then now is the time to take corrective action in order not to fall foul of the Environmental Protection Law, and subsequent air and water pollution measures.
However the only way to know what the government are doing is to research the topic, but of course much of the material is in Chinese (which is great if you are fluent in Mandarin, but troublesome if you do not read it).
