China mulls national pollution permit trading system

China mulls national pollution permit trading system | Pollution | Scoop.it

 China will look into establishing a nation-wide trading system for pollution permits as part of efforts to use market mechanisms to help clean up its environment, the country's top environment official said.

 

In remarks published on the website of the Ministry of Environmental Protection (www.mep.gov.cn) on Friday, minister Zhou Shengxian said China was working on new regulations for pollution permits and would also publish proposals for new pilot trading projects as soon as possible.

Daniel Richardson's insight:

"Pollution permits are a combination of command and control and market-based approaches to the task of limiting pollution emissions. Polluters can bid for a permit that allows them to create a fixed amount of pollution. These permits can be resold: The government can gradually reduce the number (volume) of pollution permits available so that total pollution emissions can be controlled." - Tutor2u.net.

They can significantly reduce pollution through putting a cost on polluting the enviroment, which makes it less attractive for firms to pollute through production, stopping the pollution as a result.

Kwong Sum Yin welcomes the government's new plan to tackle air pollution but says the whole of society will need to change its mindset, and make sacrifices, if we are to see clearer skies

Daniel Richardson's insight:

"whole of society will need to change its mindset, and make sacrifices, if we are to see clearer skies" many opportunity costs occur throughout means of pollution control. For example;  costs avoided through polluting and the time taken to prevent pollution.
