China firms accused of violating environmental regulations paid fines totaling 1.02 billion yuan ($154 million) in the first 10 months of 2017, up 48 percent from a year earlier, the environment ministry said. As part of a campaign to "normalize compliance" when it comes to protecting the environment, China has promised zero tolerance for firms guilty of offences such as illegally dumping waste, exceeding mandatory emissions caps or tampering with monitoring equipment.
