Hunan Takes Another Step Towards "Green"

On October 11, the meeting of promoting green construction in Hunan was held in Shaoyang City. It was released at the meeting that the green building standards will be fully implemented in public welfare areas and government invested indemnificatory apartments .


Green building refers to a structure that is resource-efficient (energy, space, water and material conservation), environmentally responsible and pollution reducing throughout a building's life-cycle. It provides healthy, practical and high-efficient usage of space for people and harmoniously co-exists with nature.


So far, Hunan has won 8 one-star, 6 two-star and 3 three-star green building identifications. According to the green building implementation plan of the Hunan Provincial People’s Government, green building standards should be followed for over 20% of the buildings in qualified areas, residential buildings and public buildings that are not government invested in Changsha, Zhuzhou and Xiangtan by the year of 2015. From 2014, for those projects where green building standards are mandatory, relevant green building contents should be strictly implemented when issuing the planning permit of construction engineering and construction permit.
