A major, long-term environmental clean-up is inevitable in China. There are clear signs that China will increasingly push companies to contribute to solving environmental problems, and that multinational corporations (MNCs) will be at the forefront of this push. Already, the supervision of corporate environmental performance is tightening.

Heightened environmental awareness, stringent regulation, and intensified enforcement carry opportunities and risks for MNCs and foreign investors. Are their sustainability practices in China on par with what they do globally? The risk of severe sanctions for offenders by China is countered by enormous opportunities for those who emerge as sustainability leaders.

All registrants will receive a complimentary copy of the report. For more resources on this topic, please visit:

Who should attend: Chief sustainability officers; heads of CSR; senior leaders in international that supervise communications, marketing, or branding in China/Asia; human capital leads responsible for employee engagement in China/Asia; compliance officers; CFOs of international; global supply chain managers.
