A Law that Addresses Supply Chain Carbon Emissions Signed into Law in California

Carbon Emissions

California is home to a lot of stringent pollution legislation that manufacturers have to contend with, but abiding by the laws has not translated into a competitive advantage for the Californian industrial firms. The 2006 bid by California Department of Transportation to construct the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is a case in point. While many Californian companies expressed their interest in undertaking the project, a Chinese firm was chosen. Californian enterprises went ballistic. They wondered why a company which is not subjected to strict pollution laws would outperform them.
