Challenges for China’s Green Economy

China has been making efforts to improve their green economy, but there have been a number of problems standing in their way. They have been facing problems with pollution as well as problems with international competitors and investment. China has been recommended to increase their investment strategies and improve their ability to compete on the global level, as well as be less lenient with the breaking of environmental rules. As a leader in the area of renewable energy technology investment, China has invested a lot into the creation of wind farms and solar PV modules.

Even though they are contributing to green technology, their dependence on coal and oil makes them the leading contributor to greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Pollution is also a major problem and according to the detailed report China’s Green Long March: A Study of Renewable Energy, Environmental Industry and Cement Sectors, this is having a negative effect on their stride towards a green economy.
