Pictures of Beijing’s skyline under “Red Alert” levels of pollution flooded the internet in late 2015. The government, in response, shut down hundreds of factories and canceled hundreds of flights – an action not at all surprising to western business leaders who regularly deal with environment-related disruptions.
