Concise Views: Conclusion and Prospect
Pp. 217-223 (7)
From the perspective of SDS, we can examine the historic background and
theoretical basis of CER in a holistic manner. Through comparison and empirical
study, we can learn the better notion and measures of CER. China’s sustainable
development is deep-rooted and moving forward. The government laws and regulations
of advanced countries, entrepreneurial spirit and corporate culture, and enterprises selfregulation
is significant in the entire enterprise system. When learning from others,
Chinese enterprises should develop the ecological wisdom of “heaven-man-harmony”.
Although China has made certain achievement in CER, various problems can be found
in reality. Chinese enterprise managers have some bias of CSR. In CSR strategy and
corresponding management system building, the state-owned enterprises are not mature
enough. The small and medium sized enterprises pay less attention to environmental
protection. Sometimes government neglects environmental responsibility. The public
participation and supervision ability is not strong enough. The trinity and collaboration
of government, enterprises and the public—extended producer responsibility, industrial
structure upgrade and environmental e-government construction; ISO 14000 system
strategy, environmental culture building; simple consumption, social service and
nongovernment involvement—will promote China’s CER practice from passively to
actively. Due to the limit of time, energy and capability, there are some questions
needed to be reflected in this research. How to carry out extended producer
responsibility? How effective are the key indicators of CER in real work situation? And
the number of questionnaire investigation is inadequate. To get profit through strategy
of social value will also be the future concern.
