More than 260,000 organizations will begin paying a new tax on various forms of environmental pollution in April, as China pushes forward its “high-quality development” agenda, the People’s Daily reports.
The Environment Protection Tax Law came into effect on Jan 1. Under the new law, enterprises and public organizations must pay fees based on the amount of pollution they produce, including solid waste, air and water pollutants, and even noise pollution.
The government has offered training to 70% of the companies affected by the new tax in a bid to make the introduction of the scheme as smooth as possible.
