Abstract: Environmental pollution has become one of the hottest topics in recent years throughout the world including the mainland of China. Along with economic growth, pollutants have increased year by year in the Peoples Republic of China (P.R.C.). Although the Chinese government does make efforts to treat pollutants and tries their best to prevent further environmental degradation, criticisms of the highly polluted environment come from both domestic and overseas sources on the governments administrative methods and implementations. We choose parameters such as GDP per capita, waste emissions and investment to illustrate the current situation of environmental protection investment and the Chinese economic level. Therefore, an analysis can be conducted to assess the investment and also the policy implementation on the basis of a special developing period. We find that the invested area has some differences between P.R.C. and other western countries because of the degree of pollution. Additionally, the legislations that were made under the Chinese central-controlled law system cannot be effectively enforced since there is a lack of supervision mechanism such as that of western countries. Finally, political suggestions will be given.
