“Green Supply Chain Action in Real Estate Industry in China” unites environmental protection experts, industry associations, enterprises, NGOs and technological institutions to develop action plans and environmental standards for green procurement, review suppliers’ environmental performances, and propose those with good environmental performances to the recommended suppliers lists (white list and green list). The real estate enterprises prompt through green procurement the upper stream suppliers to improve and upgrade their environmental performances, to achieve carbon emission and pollution reduction across the entire supply chain.
As the world largest single action of reducing pollution and carbon dioxide emission, it was launched in June 2016, and by June 2019, 100 real estate enterprises have signed up for the Green Supply Chain Action. Green procurement action plans have been drawn up for 7 categories and white lists developed for 4 categories with a total of 3,491 whitelisted enterprises and promoted RMB 5.4 billion worth of commodities to conform with the environmental standards collaborating with China Urban Realty Association (CURA). The project’s information and progresses are published and regularly updated on the Action’s official website and Wechat account for public supervision. The project is also supporting Green Supply Chain Actions of their industries such as home appliances industry.
