Several countries in Asia are attempting to transform their image as polluters to global leaders in the fight against pollution. Moreover, countries that are still industrializing increasingly respect the importance of sustainable development and the role private industry can play in reducing pollution and improving the environment. Meanwhile, private industry is responding: businesses in the region need to both meet new compliance requirements and adopt technology and practices that allow them to succeed sustainably.
Despite the dramatic increase in demand for the industry’s products and services, foreign investors still need to manage a number of challenges. Incentive schemes, permitted structures and activities, as well as infrastructure and supply chain development vary considerable across the region. These factors play a significant role in the success of any business, but particularly so for the Environment and Cleantech, which is an emerging industry that is subject to a rapidly developing regulatory environment.
Dezan Shira & Associates has helped environment and cleantech investors across China, ASEAN, and India. From pre-investment study and strategy development to setup and compliance once operational, the firm has tailored its services to help foreign companies enter this emerging industry in Asia.
