Western China SusBuild

Up-scaling and mainstreaming sustainable building practices in western China

China's unprecedented socio-economic growth drives expansion in the building sector, which has added about 2 billion m2 annually over the last decades. The building sector accounts for about 30% of the final energy consumption in China. The Chinese government has issued its first green building standard in 2006. By 2020, the Chinese government aims at 50% of new constructions. Only 10% of the construction projects currently reach that standard, out of which 90% are located in the developed eastern China. In western parts of China, new construction of green buildings is still in a pilot stage.

The project aims at scaling up sustainable building practices in less developed western China, reducing climate and resource impacts of the building sector, and contributing to sustainable socio-economic growth in China. It seeks to foster sustainable building practices among MSMEs in Chongqing City and Yunnan province with replication potential for the western China.
