China issues environment protection guidelines

Posted on

WWF welcomes the Chinese Government’s decision to issues guidelines on environmental protection to help Chinese business operating in foreign countries recognise and prevent environmental risk and fulfil their social responsibility for environmental protection. The guidelines encourage green procurement, so that Chinese companies purchase sustainably- certified products such as timber, and seek such certification for commodities produced in foreign countries. WWF hopes this will lead to Chinese companies joining multi-stakeholder certification schemes such as the Forest and Marine Stewardship Councils (FSC, MSC) and the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).
