China Pledges More Transparency (Again) on Environmental Issues

From Clean Biz Asia, Published 02 April 2014

The Chinese government is to step up efforts in tracking and disclosing information concerning environmental protection, according to a document published in the State Council’s website.

It says the government will better inform the public about air quality, water quality and details of environmental impact assessments for planned big projects.

It will also push forward information disclosure related to nuclear safety and press big polluters to actively publicize information about their pollutant discharges, it said.

The calls come in the wake of Premier Li Keqiang's opening address at the annual session of the National People's Congress in March, in which he "declared war" on pollution.
