How Market Forces Can Contribute to Clearing the Air

2:00 - 4:00 PM, Wednesday, April 08, 2015 - AmCham China Conference Center

Is there really a trade-off between economic prosperity and environmental quality in China? Can Beijing and Hebei improve air quality while maintaining employment and even increasing local GDP?

We hear a lot about how China can fix its air pollution problem through regulations and enforcement, and less about how structural economic changes can and should be part of the solution. The AmCham China Clean Tech Forum invites Anders Hove, Associate Director of China Research for the Paulson Institute, to speak about this and other main themes of a report series he and the Paulson Institute’s Climate Change & Air Quality Program are working on. Hove will summarize six areas where market forces could help reduce pollution in the Jing-Jin-Ji (Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei) region at low cost. He will also share the initial conclusions of several case studies from the US and Europe, including Los Angeles and the Ruhr Valley in Germany, that provide lessons on how regions can clean up their local environmental, shift away from heavy industry and continue to grow local GDP.
