Edited and Translated by Han Shasha, People's Daily Online

During the 12th Five-Year Plan period, Beijing plans to build 35 million square meters of green buildings. By 2015, the newly built green buildings will account for 10 percent of the total number in Beijing.

Beijing is now officially launching a campaign to evaluate green buildings and will adopt an evaluation standard.

Beijing has endeavored to raise energy efficiency in building construction to be on a par with developed countries. To 2020, the proportion of the newly built green buildings in Beijing will be at or close to levels of cities around the world.

Beijing will launch pilot green building zones in the Future Science and Technology City, Lize business area, CBD and other areas in Beijing.
