BEIJING – Tough new environmental legislation in China promises greater powers for environmental authorities and harsh punishments for polluters and means that clothing retailers need to choose their textile supply chain partners with much greater care and transparency. On April 24th, the Chinese government passed the first amendments to the country’s environmental protection law in 25 years, which allows authorities to jail company executives for up to 15 days if they do not complete environmental impact assessments or ignore warnings to stop polluting.
