In traditional manufacturing industries, the protection of the natural environment was usually neglected. People did not take actions of pollution control and environmental restoration until industrial production had led to pollution and greenhouse gases. Green manufacturing emerged in this context as a revolutionary manufacturing model. The goal is to minimize the impact on the environment and to maximize the efficiency of resource use in the entire product life cycle. Green manufacturing depends on a perfect social support system, and relevant legal protection should be considered. This paper is aimed to elucidate the legal protection of a new era of China Green Manufacturing, on the basis of the ecological significance of the green manufacturing. We elaborated the connotation of green manufacturing in new era, and explained the legal systems related to green manufacturing in China in details. Finally we put forward the new requirement of green manufacture to law.
