Throughout 2017, approximately 233,000 environmental violations were investigated and prosecuted, representing a year-on-year increase of 69 per cent. While the majority of violations were by domestic enterprises, these companies represented the local suppliers of many European companies  in China. As is well documented, the clampdown of these polluting companies caused havoc in supply chains, impacting numerous industries. 


MEE have recently announced, similar to 2017, that an action plan on prevention and control of air pollution for the autumn-winter 2018/2019 will be implemented by both central and provincial governments to enforce environmental standards in order to reduce air pollution in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei integrated area. Again, this will be sure to greatly impact foreign companies and especially their suppliers.


The European Chamber is pleased to invite you to join experts from academia, consultancy and non-governmental organisations to discuss the issues that underpin the environmental protection storm in China.  The focus of this seminar will be on the solutions and strategies companies can take to identify and to mitigate risk to their supply chain, especially as we move towards this year’s autumn-winter action plan.
