Improving Environmental and Safety Performance in the Electrical and Electronics Industry in China

ESEEC map

Recent economic growth has contributed to poverty alleviation and has raised living standards in China. However, the economic boom also increased energy consumption and environmental degradation. Additionally, it raised concerns about worker and consumer safety both in the country and the region. The electrical and electronics industries contribute substantially to China's water and air pollution including it overall CO2 emissions.

The SWITCH-Asia project "Improving Environmental and Safety Performance in the Electrical and Electronics Sector (ESEEC)" aims to improve sustainable production patterns. It wants to switch behaviour to sustainability by mobilising the private sector, along with relevant public sector authorities. The project targets the performance of over 500 Chinese SMEs in the electrical and electronics sector in the area of eco-efficiency, occupational health & safety and corporate social responsibility.

SMEs with understanding of the integrated CSR approach will streamline the management of environmental and social issues at the workplace. The integrated CSR approach ensures sustainable production cycles by key stakeholders and strengthens the SME's compliance with environmental standards in the industrial process of the Electric and Electronics Industry.

"While promoting responsible resource management models,the project Improving Environmental and Safety Performance in the Electrical and Electronics Industry in China will generate multiple win-win benefits to European supply chains and more than 500 Chinese SMEs of a fast-growing and traditionally export-oriented sector. To achieve upgraded and sustainable practices in the field of eco-efficiency, occupational health and safety and corporate social responsibility, a flexible incentive and capacity building program will engage the entire chain of stakeholders from producers to standardisation authorities and policy makers and contribute to strengthened trade relations between China and Europe."
