(Photo: Chinanews)Chinas first receipt of the environmental tax, promulgated on Jan. 1, 2018, was delivered on Sunday to a Shanghai new chemical material manufacturer owned by BASF SE, the worlds largest chemical company.The firm got a tax deduction of 600 yuan for fulfilling pollutant discharges up to standard, an encouragement environmental authorities proposed of factories green shift.The first environmental tax in China, passed by the countrys top legislature at the end of 2016 which took effect at the beginning of 2018, aims to curb firms reckless moves of emitting pollutants hazardous to the eco-system and to push them to overhaul equipment to a cleaner level, amid global competitiveness.The tax initially applies to air and water pollution, solid waste and noise, with technical apparatus needed to precisely determine emission levels. Cooperation between the tax and environment departments is needed to check tax bills based on data and professional advise, said Liu Ying, a professor at the Capital University of Economics and Business in Beijing.The tax regulation adjusts itself depending on the region. Northern provinces such as Hebei and Shanxi where air pollution is the top environmental threat, slap stricter penalties with 12 yuan per equivalence (a determination method of pollution), 10 times to standard in good-air-quality districts. Regions where chemical plants are heavily located will meet harsh restrictions in checking water pollutants, with the highest tax level of 14 yuan per equivalence.The tax system also pushes China to narrow the gap with Western peers in fulfilling a green economy. Western countries started the green control on plants as early as in 1970s when the Netherlands spearheaded a surface water tax bill. In 1995, the Netherlands Green Committee was set up to push forward environmental protection measures.The US followed by introducing flexible policies in favor of a balance between beefing up industry and preserving the eco-system. The EU incorporated a subsidiary system in 2003 to protect agricultural landscapes in its ongoing green campaign, a milestone move to ensure food safety. var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Bianji, Liang Jun)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if ({disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9444707;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname +;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.We RecommendFishermen build wall with 2,000 fish in Jilin
