The Managing Director of TSC Greater China, Weidong Zhou shared Chinese version of 2016 TSC Impact Report for the first time. The report states “Global production and use of consumer goods accounts for more than 60 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions, 80 percent of water usage, and two-thirds of tropical forest loss globally.

With 2.5 billion more people joining the consuming class in the next few decades, we must address the production, use, and disposal of consumer goods: a sustainable world requires sustainable production and consumption”.
