As well as updating the FCCC on recent Chinese environmental legislation, Chinese environmentalist Ma Jun will explain the success so far of his organization in greening China’s industrial supply chain by pushing large corporations to concentrate on procurement and the environmental performance of their suppliers here. Ma is the founder of the Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs (IPE), a registered non-profit organization based in Beijing which aims to expand environmental information disclosure. The IPE has developed a pollution database (which covers water, air and solid waste) to monitor corporate environmental performance, thus facilitating public participation in environmental governance and encouraging consumers to exercise their purchasing power to make green choices.
 
While working at the South China Morning Post in the 1990s, Ma Jun witnessed the environmental pollution, eco-degradation in some of China’s key watershed regions. He began focusing on research into water challenges, and his book “China’s Water Crisis” became a national call for environmental protection. Realizing that access to information was key to public participation in pollution control, Ma Jun founded the Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs (IPE), where he organizes the monitoring and enforcement data from the Chinese government to make it available to the public through online air and water pollution maps.
