According to investigation data from authoritative sources, more than eighty percent people would purchase properties with green building certification, and more than sixty percent people would accept that the price of properties with green building certification is higher than the similar properties. Thus it can be seen that health, green and ecology are becoming the weathervane of house purchasing.

Since the promulgation and implementation of the “Green Building Assessing Standard” in our country in 2006, green buildings have become the order of the day. However, in recent decade, it has been growing wildly and green building has become the product awash with technology which is expensive and unpractical. Mr. Huang, Deputy General Manager, said in his statement that it might be the key to actual effects of green buildings and future development in China how to apply the green building technology to architectural design correctly and efficiently.

The costs of green building lifecycle indicates that the costs of construction and installation only account for 15%-20% of the total cost while running cost after construction 80%-85%. Mr. Huang said that only green mode of respecting nature, adaptation to local conditions and balancing construction, running and inhabitant experiences could we achieve controllable cost to protect the profits; and this had been the green conception of “Humans—Buildings—Nature” which Yuexiu Property kept for over twenty years.
