China Turns to International Community to Learn about Green Buildings

China is seeking to learn more about green buildings with the help of leading nations in the international community.

The Chinese government has pledged to speed up construction of green buildings. To accomplish this goal, the government has sought out the expertise of the international community.

Li Bingren, chief economist at the Chinese Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, said, the government has signed a memorandum of understanding on green buildings with a number of other countries, including the US, France, Germany and Singapore.

The Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development has been holding seminars related to climate change and green building that has allowed Chinese officials to learn from the experience of foreign countries, Li added.

Although China still has a long way to go to catch up with international leaders in the realm of green building, they are moving in the right direction.
