BEIJING - There is further evidence this week that the tide is turning against polluting businesses in China with news that China's Supreme People's Court has announced a new judgement ruling which will make it easier for NGOs to sue polluters. NGOs looking to sue polluting firms – or individuals – will gain special status and have their court fees reduced, while defendants will be required to pay court costs when plaintiffs win lawsuits. The move is the latest evidence that the country's highest court is stepping up efforts to curb pollution that is choking China's major cities on a daily basis. It also arrives at a time when China is looking to enforce more rigorously stringent new effluent treatment discharge limits relating to the dyeing and finishing process in the textile industry.
