China’s rapid development has created urgent environmental and energy challenges – but it also presents a unique opportunity to help shape a low-carbon, sustainable development pathway for China that would have significant benefits both for China and the world. For over 15 years, NRDC has been working to strengthen environmental protection and reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in China by working with central and local governments, research institutes, environmental groups, and businesses to develop the policies and tools needed to address China’s climate and energy challenges.


China is in the midst of strengthening its environmental laws, establishing a more robust enforcement system and developing the public’s right to participate – all of which are critical to creating a cleaner, healthier environment. Building on four decades of experience in legal advocacy, NRDC is training, advising and collaborating with Chinese experts and decision-makers to build the legal framework for stronger environmental laws and better enforcement.

 
NRDC and a group of apparel retailers and brand partners have launched a program to green the global textile supply chain. Starting in China, NRDC is spearheading a series of measures called the Responsible Sourcing Initiative (RSI) aimed at curbing pollution in the country’s textile mills, while saving the industry money. Although the initiative is still in its early stages, this has been a win-win for both the environment and the manufacturers’ bottom line.
