China is the world's biggest polluter. But toxic smog in its cities is increasingly generating enormous public anger.

Now the authorities say they want the green industries to have a turnover of more than $700bn by 2015. They're offering tax breaks and subsidies to promote growth and innovation within the sector.

It's the latest move by the government to curb pollution. Last month, the authorities ordered hundreds of steel, paper and leather factories to shut down production lines that were causing high levels of pollution.
