By WANG, XIAOYANICHONGQING|Oct 13,2021

Chongqing- On October 8th, in Jiangbeizui Jiangtan Park, Jiangbei District, many tourists walked along the waterway. Jiangtan Park is a crucial shoreline improvement project in the core area of the city’s “Two Rivers and Four Banks” (Changjiahui Grand Scenic Area). The park is built along the river and is full of greenery, fully demonstrating the uniqueness of Chongqing’s mountain city and river city.

The central city metropolitan area is Chongqing’s mountain and river city, with a unique urban form and excellent ecological endowment. In recent years, the city has promoted the greening of spatial patterns, production methods, lifestyles and used urban philosophy and aesthetics to improve the quality of the urban ecological environment. Therefore, making green be the most beautiful background for urban development in the central metropolitan area of Chongqing.

In Beibei District in October, Jinyun Mountain is covered with picturesque ridges and beautiful colors. In recent years, Beibei District has taken the comprehensive renovation as an opportunity to implement ecological protection and restoration of Jinyun Mountain. At the same time, excavate and improve the overall environmental quality and value of Jinyun Mountain, effectively reviving its original “green lung” and natural barrier function. Beibei also relied on the natural features and historical and cultural characteristics of Jinyun Mountain to explore a new model of green development. As a result, the ecologically restored Daihu Lake became an online celebrity check-in point, Wen Liang and other villagers also joined the ranks of ecological protection.

The changes in Jinyun Mountain are just one of the explorations in Chongqing to promote the harmonious coexistence of man and nature and promote the integration of the city and the ecosystem.

Promote the green transformation of production methods

The green industry is the critical support to promote the green development of major urban areas. Implementing the requirements of carbon neutrality and energy consumption” dual control” is the only way to comprehensively improve the level of green development of the manufacturing industry. At present, Chongqing is accelerating the construction of a green and low-carbon industrial system, coordinating the green and low-carbon orientation of sectors, construction, transportation, and other industries. Chongqing also strengthens the overall management of binding energy conservation indicators, emission reduction, and carbon reduction. As a result, data show that in 2020, Chongqing’s energy consumption per 10,000 yuan of GDP dropped by more than 15% compared to 2015, maintaining a good trend of declining 3% year by year.

The key to green development is to build a green industrial system. Chongqing focuses on intelligent manufacturing. On the one hand, it accelerates the intellectual transformation of traditional industries. On the other hand, it accelerates the development of new energy, artificial intelligence, integrated circuits, and other advanced manufacturing and strategic emerging industries with low energy consumption and low pollution.

Xiantao Data Valley, located in Yubei District, was once a remote small mountain village, and now more than a thousand digital economy companies are densely distributed. From January to July this year, the output value of intelligent terminals in the autonomous sector of Yubei District was 36.66 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 149%, and the contribution rate to the region’s output value growth reached 43.7%.

Add some “green” to the citizens’ lifestyle

To achieve the green development of the central city metropolitan area, the joint efforts of the general public are inseparable, and providing a matching green lifestyle is the primary way for citizens to participate in and practice green development.

During the National Day, Bishan District launched a series of activities such as comic exhibitions, national styles, and rural art seasons, and 750,000 tourists went to check-in. Many tourists gave up self-driving and chose to travel by “Yunba.”

The cute-looking “Yunba” is independently developed by BYD and is a small-volume rail transit system with 100% independent intellectual property rights. It is a cross-border fusion product of rail transit and automobile technology, equipped with several intelligent urban rail “black technologies” such as fully automatic driverless systems, and is a green and efficient way of travel. In addition, the first phase of the “Yunba” project also strung together the Fengxiang Lake Children’s Park, Dongyue Sports Park, Xiuhu Car Camping Park, Xiuhu Park, and other major city parks in Bishan. Bishan District is also relying on the Yunba track to build a line with it. The “cycling + walking” slow-moving system forms an urban green corridor, during which you can enjoy the beautiful scenery and enjoy a relaxing time.

As an essential part of green life, garbage classification has gradually gained popularity in recent years. In the streets and alleys of major urban areas, garbage sorting bins, garbage sorting intelligent recycling points can be seen everywhere. It is understood that currently, the garbage classification in the central city of Chongqing has covered 114 towns and streets and 3.754 million households, basically achieving full coverage. A total of 59 domestic waste treatment facilities have been built and put into operation in the city, with a daily classification and disposal capacity of 29,000 tons. The harmless treatment rate of domestic waste was maintained at 100%. As a result, the central urban area has achieved complete incineration and zero-landfill of primary domestic waste.

Next, Chongqing will continue to promote garbage classification firmly, build conservation-oriented institutions, green families, green schools, and green communities, vigorously implement the “Ban on free plastic bags,” an in-depth development of the “Clear your plate” campaign so that a green and low-carbon lifestyle will become popular.
