Monitoring corporate pollution in China
Project URL: ipe.org.cn/en
The Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs (IPE) is a registered non-profit organisation based in Beijing. Since it was founded in May 2006, the IPE has developed two pollution databases (water & air) to monitor corporate environmental performance, and to facilitate public participation in environmental governance.
The aim is to extend the disclosure of environmental information to allow communities to fully understand the risks in the environment.
The IPE is a member of a coalition of NGOs throughout China, promoting a global green supply chain, by pushing large corporations to concentrate on the environmental performance of their suppliers. This ‘Green Choice Alliance’ consumer initiative takes into consideration the environmental performance of manufacturing enterprises, while exercising their purchasing power to make green choices.
