Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City (China): Sustainable City Grand Prize Winner - Green Solutions Awards 2018

The Tianjin eco-city stands in the new Tianjin Binhai area and covers a 30km2 total area. In 2007, the Sino-Singaporean framework agreement included the integration of the eco-city into a "conservation of  resources, environmental protection and social harmony" approach, to "become the model of sustainable development". Since its launch in 2008, and after 10 years of construction, 95% of the southern district has been built to accommodate 110,000 inhabitants. 

In terms of quality of life, all residential areas have free sports and recreational facilities within a 500m range. Customized systems and services are also available to serve the maximum number of people in the same 500m radius: for example, hospitals, health centers, sports fields, popular arts with the preservation of regional culture and local services.

To favor economic development, the district will establish a platform for technological innovations and their applications in the areas of environmental protection, energy conservation and emissions reduction,
green buildings and circular economy. 

The Tianjin Eco-city is a demonstrator of ecological restoration and construction on saline-alkaline soil through its water resources management plan and advanced technologies for remediation of contaminated soil.

Biodiversity is a very important focus of the Tianjin Eco-city project: favoring local plant species, restoration and construction of bird habitats in the ecological succession areas of Parrot and Egret Islands and Yongding. The biodiversity plan allows the Tianjin Eco-city to foster 469 animal and plant varieties as of 2013, including 332 animals and 137 plants.
