Despite the imposition of significant regulatory requirements, the condition of China's environment is still in the balance. The demands of economic modernization are competing with, and often overriding, industry's attempts at greening. The cause appears to lie with a lack of congruence between social values, government action and the availability of the necessary resources to bring about change. This paper seeks to understand and identify the reasons for these gaps through a series of focus group discussions with Chinese manufacturing managers.
