Immelt says that GE's investments in clean coal technology, wind power, nuclear energy, and fuel cells are being made with China in mind. "While Europe has been a driver for innovation in cleaner technologies, China promises to be its market," he says.

Lee Scott Jr. said Thursday. The company has come under mounting fire from organized opponents over the environmental and labor standards of the low-cost manufacturers overseas from which it buys. Wal-Mart must act because consumers blame stores, not suppliers, for abuses. Scott said Wal-Mart will be more involved in its suppliers' businesses to find new products that meet demand for higher standards. Wal-Mart will ask, "Are you running your factories in a way that promotes environmental sustainability? PUBLIC HEALTH DRIVERS:  PUBLIC HEALTH DRIVERS Compounds such as antidepressants, over the counter drugs, insect repellants and antibiotics are now commonly found in waterways receiving treated wastewater. They can arrive various ways, including: HOUSEHOLDS: A major source of these compounds is the home. Some substances are not fully metabolized and can pass through the human body and enter wastewater treatment systems. Substances such as insect repellants are rinsed off in shower water and enter waste streams. TREATMENT PLANTS: Many compounds flowing into treatment plants are not intercepted by cleansing processes and enter rivers with treated wastewater discharges. Much of the flow in some rivers in urbanized areas is treated wastewater. The Hartford Courant October 27, 2005 Pharmaceuticals And Personal Care Products In The Environment DRIVERS: FERTILITY IMPACTS:  DRIVERS: FERTILITY IMPACTS Air pollution linked to sperm damage         Air pollution can damage sperm, potentially leading to birth defects or miscarriages, according to research published on Monday. Scientists said the results were a warning of the number of chemicals commonly present in the air that can cause damage to human DNA. Led by Jiri Rubes of the Veterinary Research Institute in the Czech Republic, the study, in collaboration with the United States Environmental Protection Agency, found a "significant association between exposure to periods of high air pollution (at or above the upper limit of US air quality standards) and the percentage of sperm with DNA fragmentation." The results were published in the latest issue of the journal Human Reproduction. People’s Daily Online (China) September 29, 2005 Slide15:  Source: Science News, August 2, 2003, Vol 164 (p72)) Studies “now accepted by most researchers” have shown that community death rates rise and fall nearly in lock-step with local changes in concentrations of tiny dust particles – even when concentrations of those particulates are just one-quarter of the federal limit for indoor air. Research since 2001 links the greatest harm to the tiniest dust: particulate matter no more than 2.5 micrmeters in diameter, called the PM-2.5 fraction. Ultrafines, particles less than 0.1 micrometer across, may be the most dangerous. They represent a class of dust that environmental studies and regulations have generally ignored. – Joel Schwartz Harvard School of Public Health 2003 DRIVERS: RISING GLOBAL STANDARDS:  DRIVERS: RISING GLOBAL STANDARDS The drive to meet rising global standards of one kind or another is affecting just about every multinational FORTUNE 500 company. Spurred by regulation in Europe and the prospect of sales to China, General Electric is investing $1.5 billion over the next five years in research into energy-efficient and environmentally friendly products like wind turbines, clean coal technology, and appliances that save water or electricity. Intel, Xerox, Motorola, and Dell are revamping their supply chains to get lead out of microprocessors, copiers, cellphones, and computers. And Nike and Gap dispatch inspectors who monitor hundreds of their suppliers in the developing world, at considerable expense. What we're seeing here are local standards that have worldwide impact—for better or worse. It can be frustrating (not to mention costly) to comply with tough European Union regs, but it's bad business for multinationals to make things that won't sell across the global economy—so companies tend to cleave to the highest regulatory standards and consumer expectations no matter where they arise. Even a big state like California can have influence far beyond its borders, partly because of Washington's laissez-faire attitude toward regulation.
