China's Environmental Future by The Chicago Council

Pictures of Beijing’s skyline under “Red Alert” levels of pollution flooded the internet in late 2015. The government, in response, shut down hundreds of factories and canceled hundreds of flights – an action not at all surprising to western business leaders who regularly deal with environment-related disruptions. The coming years will continue to present new challenges, especially considering the COP21 agreements and China’s next five-year plan (the much-discussed Shísānwǔ) which will likely change the framework under which many global organizations operate. How are environmental regulations affecting western and domestic companies in China? Join the Council on Global Affairs and the University of Chicago for an expert analysis of pollution, carbon trading, and all of China’s environmental priorities.
