Book Description

Could China lead the world in an effective transition to a green, inclusive global economy? Or will it be too slow in moving towards green to prevent collective catastrophe? Even worse, could China be a virulent part of the problem, savaging the global environment through a reckless dash for continued growth with associated natural resource and climate implications?In Eco-China Inc., Simon Zadek explores the argument that China could - and must - become the 21st century`s global eco-warrior, advancing a green transition at a scale and speed that could only be precipitated in peace time by unilateral action taken by an economic super-power. China's future is, however, an open book, and could take us along a very different path, spelling collective disaster. China is at a crossroad, with the capabilities to make a real choice that will write tomorrow`s history.In this timely and provocative book, Simon Zadek questions whether China`s actions today indicate which pathway it will take, and how China, with the international community, might leverage China's leadership role to mutual benefit.
