Build­ing a sus­tain­able home is a com­mon goal of all mankind. Mov­ing away from the tra­di­tional de­vel­op­ment model that sac­ri­ficed the en­vi­ron­ment for eco­nomic growth, China has em­barked on a road of green and sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment, and the drive to build an eco­log­i­cal civ­i­liza­tion is im­pact­ing ev­ery­one’s life across the board.

Over the past five years, no­table eco­log­i­cal progress has been made across the coun­try.

The in­sti­tu­tional mech­a­nism to pro­mote eco­log­i­cal progress has steadily im­proved, pol­lu­tion con­trol has seen en­cour­ag­ing im­prove­ment, green de­vel­op­ment has as achieved re­mark­able re­sults and the qual­ity of eco­log­i­cal cal en­vi­ron­ment has been con­tin­u­ously en­hanced. The idea ea that “clear wa­ters and lush moun­tains are in­valu­able as­sets” ets” is deeply rooted in the hearts of the peo­ple and has in- - creas­ingly achieved broad con­sen­sus across so­ci­ety.

As har­mo­nious co­ex­is­tence between hu­man and na­ture ac­tu­ally be­comes re­al­ity, a brand new scroll of green reen China is un­rolling in front of us.
