ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYYes
In the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology's three-year action plan released on the 25th of May 2017, ideas put forward in other previous announcements are collated and large industrial production firms are urged to adhere to new environmental standards. For the next three years (until 2019), such firms will be eligible for government-sponsored investments through a 'market-oriented, diversified investment mechanism', as well as 'prioritisation of green finance' to achieve said goals.
One of the main motivations of the plan is to 'make the [Chinese] market more internationally competitive'; i.e. this is an inward-facing policy intended to boost efficiency and reduce waste in industry.
