Listed chemical enterprises face mandatory disclosure of environmental annual reports

on July 3, Fujian Zijin Mining Co., Ltd., a listed company that had previously been notified of serious environmental protection problems, had another serious sewage leakage accident. The environmental protection of listed enterprises has once again attracted the attention of the whole society. On July 13, the Ministry of environmental protection of the people's Republic of China issued the notice on further tightening the management system of listed environmental protection verification and strengthening the supervision of listed companies after environmental protection verification, requiring all provincial environmental protection departments to urge listed companies within their jurisdiction to issue annual environmental reports. In this regard, some listed chemical enterprises have said that in the future, listed enterprises will face mandatory disclosure of environmental annual reports, and the pressure on environmental protection will further increase

the notice requires that the contents of the listed company's annual environmental report to be disclosed include the implementation of environmental management systems such as industrial policies, environmental assessment, up to standard emissions and total amount control, pollutant discharge declaration and payment of pollutant discharge fees, cleaner production audit, heavy metal pollution prevention and control, operation of environmental protection facilities, use and management of toxic and harmful substances, and environmental risk management. These projects will be an important part of the environmental protection verification of the listing

a professor from the accounting department of Southwestern University of Finance and economics told that foreign listed companies mainly adopt quantitative reports, supplemented by qualitative descriptions, but China's previous disclosure of environmental information was not high, whether it was inserted face-to-face, few published environmental reports. The notice issued this time has made relatively comprehensive provisions on the disclosure of relevant information

width at present, among the listed companies in Shanghai and Shenzhen, there are more than 300 chemical enterprises, accounting for more than 10% of all listed companies. Chemical production has the characteristics of high temperature, high pressure, inflammable, explosive, toxic, harmful and corrosive. Most enterprises are built beside rivers with abundant water sources, and most rivers and streams carry the function of local drinking water sources. If a pollution event occurs, its social impact will be huge

it is understood that in May this year, the Ministry of environmental protection inspected the listed companies that passed the environmental protection inspection of the Ministry of environmental protection from 2007 to 2008 and found that 11 of the 58 companies had serious environmental protection problems that had not been rectified on schedule, including 4 chemical enterprises, including northwest Yongxin Chemical Co., Ltd., Xinjiang Tianye Co., Ltd., China Coal Energy Co., Ltd. and Sichuan North nitrocellulose Co., Ltd

the main environmental protection problems of these 11 companies include the failure to implement the environmental assessment approval or "three Simultaneities" acceptance system according to law, the failure to complete the task of eliminating backward production capacity on schedule, the failure to complete the total emission reduction supporting projects on schedule, the failure to dispose of hazardous waste according to law, the excessive discharge of pollutants, the arrears of huge sewage charges, the imperfect environmental protection facilities or the failure to install monitoring systems, and the failure to complete the relocation of residents within the protection distance

"we have made rectification, and the Ministry of environmental protection accepted us in June." Northwest Chemical Company Securities Department official said. It is understood that at the end of May, northwest chemical released an announcement about the problem of "the monitoring results show that the unorganized emission of xylene exceeds the standard". The company has achieved the standard emission of benzene series and other pollutants by adopting the new production process of color paste method, using closed sand mills for production equipment, adopting pipeline transportation for major materials such as resin and solvent, strengthening on-site clean production management, and strictly preventing leakage and other measures. In addition, the company built a solvent recovery device in November 2009, which fully realized the harmless treatment of hazardous wastes. More than 300 barrels of waste oil and waste organic solvents and other hazardous wastes originally stored in the plant have been recovered and disposed of

Sichuan North nitrocellulose Co., Ltd. also said in an interview that they have completed the rectification and are currently waiting for the acceptance of the environmental protection department. Xinjiang Tianye Co., Ltd. also said that leaders at all levels, customers and friends from all walks of life who care about and support the development of water shares had completed the rectification in January

it is understood that in addition to the introduction of the environmental annual report system of listed companies, the Ministry of environmental protection will also establish an announcement system for listed environmental protection verification, publish the list of enterprises that have passed the ministerial and provincial Environmental Protection Verification every quarter, and disperse the analog-to-digital (a/d) conversion circuit into digital quantities every year to publish the supervision results after environmental protection. Each provincial environmental protection department must report the direct issuance of verification opinions by the province in the previous quarter to the Ministry of environmental protection before the 15th day of the first month of each quarter

some listed chemical enterprises interviewed said that the issuance of the notice is both pressure and driving force for enterprises. The protection of clear water and blue sky is common to all mankind. Enterprises should adhere to the principle of consciously assuming social responsibilities, strengthen the treatment and monitoring of pollution sources, comprehensively recycle resources, and continuously improve environmental protection through continuously increasing capital investment
