China mulls green tax
By Hao Yan (chinadaily.com.cn)
The Chinese government is considering an environmental tax, and also discussing a tax on carbon emissions, Cri.com reported Wednesday, citing an official.
During the 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-2016), the government will largely use market and economic measures to accelerate efforts to reduce carbon emissions, Xie said.
Some cities, including Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin, are participating in a carbon credit exchange trial, Xie added.
