One of China’s best successes has in turn been one of its biggest downfalls. One of the main problems is China’s greatest success which has been its phenomenal economic growth. This is one of the main drivers of the current environmental problems that the country faces. Factories dump pollutants into the air and water. It is difficult to see the Chinese government making the significant sacrifices required to improve their environment if it means slowing down their economic growth.
Cancer Villages: Living in a Death Sentence The Bubonic Plague crushed the world effortlessly in the Middle Ages; ever since, the world has sought to invest in improved living conditions.

China has shifted their view on the matter of climate change as they are trying to lower their use of coal as an energy source form 72% to 47% by 2040. This may be due to the fact that the Chinese administration is trying to make China a global clean energy leader, which would draw worldwide investments.
The gross domestic product system is flawed and has many criticisms as a realistic guide to a nation's well-being. It includes the cost of damage caused by pollution as a positive factor in its calculations while excluding the lost value of depleted natural resources and unpaid costs of environmental harm. “...during 1973-85 had higher pollution intensities of GDP than those with more inward-oriented trade policies,” states Michael T. Rock, 1996, in “Pollution Intensity of GDP and Trade Policy: Can the World Bank Be Wrong?”. Furthermore, in “As China Roars, Pollution Reaches Deadly Extremes,” by Joseph Kahn and Jim Yardley (2007) states, “ Environmental degradation is now so severe, with such stark domestic and international repercussions, that pollution poses not only a major long-term burden on the Chinese public....Environmental woes that might be considered catastrophic in some countries can seem commonplace in China: industrial cities where people rarely see the sun; children killed or sickened by lead poisoning or other types of local pollution.” These lines represent major issues about air pollution affecting the people and the environment. The pollution also affects biodiversity because it releases both sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides deposit in water, on vegetation, and on soils as “acid rain”. Thereby increasing their acidity affects the ability of ecosystems to provide “ecosystem services”, such

According to history of China, water consumption, growing population and demand for higher living standards were increasing steadily since the 1950s, when industrial development of the country started. In theory that could lead to new economic era and growth of the country, but in practice that caused one of the most important environmental problems in China. First of all, the pollution of water resources in this country goes deep into history in the 1970s. According to Wang (1989), the situation hasn’t changed for the better and the rate of pollution increased rapidly. Even nowadays the government of China cannot tackle
Subsequently, over 50% of Canada’s exports to China are Canada can work with China to improve their air quality and protect their environment, by stipulating that the companies that supply Canada with goods from China must obtain the ISO 14001 certification. Furthermore, the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) ISO 14001 is an environmental management system that helps companies reduce their environmental impact (International Organization for Standardization, n.d.). Specifically, ISO 14001 includes 5 elements: the environmental policy to adhere by, the development of company procedures to describe compliance to ISO’s policies, the implementation and operation of the company’s procedures, the audits that ensure the organization is following their procedures and ISO’s policies, and lastly the management review (ENLAR Compliance Services, 2013). As a result, if many private companies have an incentive to reduce emissions in China, there will be more focus within the country to accomplish the goal to improve their air quality. However, this may decrease profits for many Chinese company’s, which may put 10 million jobs at risk in the textile industry alone (Kane, 2014).
3. Forms of International Business By taking a closer look into the different types of international business, it is helpful to first define the two major categories. All types of international business are sub-categories of equity and non-equity entry modes. These are different in their commitment level of spending resources, which is extremely difficult to transfer to other business units. Therefore, to choose the correct entry modes to other countries is one of the most critical strategy decision of a multinational enterprise (Decker and Zhao, 2004, p.1). In addition, the risk as well as the control is a major difference. The equity entry modes require more investments and are therefore riskier. However, the companies using an equity entry mode have more control over the
Currently, most countries have made numerous environmental policies and spent lots of money to stop environmental pollution and protect the environment. In China, China’s leaders were putting, even more, emphasis on the companies who make chemical production, especially after chemical disasters in recent years. Although China has made great process in supervision pollution, the
