The "Green Building 3 stars" Chinese label is handled by the Ministry of Housing and Urban and Rural development. Buildings are certified by China’s ecological label office at the China Green Technology Center.
As a first step, the building can be awarded the "Green Building Design“ label, which allows the building to be commercialized as a green building. Then, in the second phase, the building may be awarded the "Green Building Operation“ label.
