China Weighs Environmental Concerns Against Economic Growth

Multimedia from this Release


Special correspondent Jeffrey Kaye reports from Guangdong province in southern China on the clash between the populous nation's economic ambitions and worsening pollution problem. Manufacturing Organizations in China are increasing their safety, clean-up and recycling efforts in their work processes. One effort to promote environmental awareness in China is GE’s Environmental Health and Safety Academy, which trains managers in manufacturing companies. The Academy provides courses in environmental regulations, risk assessment and health hazards. It has support from the U.S. government, major transnational corporations, and a Vermont-based foundation, the Institute for Sustainable Communities, represented in Guangdong Province by Wan Yang.
