Additional burden likely on Chinese textile industry
Dec '11
An additional burden awaits the Chinese textile industry, which is already enduring severe constraints due to a decline in exports and the rising wages.

China, termed as the world's biggest polluter, is finding it difficult to meet many of its environmental targets for 2015. Hence, it is pondering to impose a new 'green tax' on the country's textile industry.

In its effort to raise the chances of achieving the 2015 environmental targets, the State Council of China is considering to conduct research regarding the imposition and collection of environment-related taxes.

China is aiming to reduce its energy consumption per 10,000 yuan of GDP by 16 percent by 2015, equivalent to 670 million tons of coal. However, there has been very little progress in this direction. Moreover, a rise of 6.17 percent every year has been noted in emissions of nitric oxide, a major pollutant, according to the data of the Ministry of Environmental Protection.

A 2006 report, released by China Institute of Geo-Environment Monitoring, states that around 70 percent of reservoirs, rivers and lakes in China are polluted. Recently, however, the Government has acknowledged the seriousness of the situation, but the industrial release of toxic, and other wastes continue as usual.

Actually, China's quick-paced progress in textile industry has come at a huge cost. The current challenges being faced by the Chinese textile industries would be further heightened due to the impact of green tax.
