A subsidiary of CDB, called China Development Bank Capital (CDBC) has draft “Guidelines for green and smart urban development” publicly available. These guidelines appear to be targeted mainly at investments within China. The guidelines cover green buildings, renewable and distributed energy, waste management and water efficiency. They include principles such as all new developments should be within a 500-meter radius of a bus or rapid transit station, energy efficiency standards need to be adhered to in buildings and that the electricity mix should include 5-15% generated from local renewable energy in residential areas. It would appear these draft guidelines from 2015 were never adopted as official guidelines but did form the basis of a CDBC endorsed book that has been used as a reference document in CDBC urban development planning.
Recommendation: CDB and CDBC should adopt the draft CDBC urban guidelines as official policy.
