At least 18 companies either on last year’s Fortune Global 500 or the China 100 list had failed to comply with the Ministry of Environmental Protection’s rules issued last year requiring enterprises operating in China to release key pollution data, the South China Morning Post reported, citing a Greenpeace report. The report also stated that local officials failed to reprimand enterprises flouting the disclosure rules. Under the rules, firms blacklisted by local governments for exceeding emissions standards must publish their pollution data within 30 days. Greenpeace said such multinationals as Shell, Samsung, Nestle, Kraft and Motorola, as well as the mainland’s Sinopec and China Shenhua, had done poor jobs of reporting pollution figures.
