But this has come at a terrible price in terms of pollution, public health, and waste. In response, businesses operating in China are recognizing they can profit by going green. The BusinessWeek Greener China Business Awards recognize the achievements of 10 companies, all of them leaders in adopting and promoting environmentally responsible processes.
