The real estate investment management firm Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated (JLL) Monday said in a report that certification of existing green buildings in China will show rapid growth China's Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development recently said green buildings will account for over 30 percent of total new buildings in China by 2020.

Statistics show that since the first building in China received the Leadership inDesign (LEED) gold certification in 2015, more than 2,000 buildings have been applied or given the LEED certification by now.

In fact, many new buildings in China are certified by LEED for design and construction, but only 50 out of 2,000 existing buildings have received the certification for operation and maintenance.

However, JLL expected the gap between construction and maintenance of Chinese green buildings would be bridged as the green building industry gradually matures and the ultimate users are more familiar with the green standards.
