Shanghai Green Building Incubator: Your entryway into China's robust green building market
The U.S. Green Building Council has teamed up with Shanghai Industrial Finance Investment Co. Ltd (SHIF)to offer USGBC members services through a green building technology incubator in Shanghai, China. If your company has ever considered expanding its business into China, this could be an important next step. The environmental imperatives, business trends, and governmental mandates in China signal great opportunity and China is in fact, the world’s third largest market outside of the U.S. for LEED projects. The SHIF green building technology incubator is to help explore business opportunities in China and identifying investment partners in the capital market.
SHIF and USGBC’s are working together to promote the green building industry and LEED in China. To that end, SHIF will provide most of its services to USGBC members at no cost. More than 80 USGBC members have already certified LEED projects in China.
*The Shanghai Green Building Incubator (GBTI) is the first officially certified green building technology incubator in Shanghai. The incubator is operated and managed by Shanghai Industrial Finance Investment Co. Ltd (SHIF), which is the joint venture of Shanghai Land Reserve Center (acting as Shanghai land central bank) and Shanghai University of Finance and Economics. The incubator has more than 250K sqf office spaces surrounded by a beautiful garden, and valuable amenities such as parking, luncheon facilities, a coffee bar, adjoining apartment for employees, and an indoor stadium.
