Key Principles and KPIs

  • Key Principles
  • Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

Two key principles guiding the development of the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City are the Three Harmonies and the Three Abilities.

The Three Harmonies refer to harmony between people and the environment, harmony between people and the economy and harmony among people. The Eco-City’s development and operation must not be destructive to the environment. At the same time, the Eco-City must be economically vibrant and sustainable, and should foster harmony among its residents.

The Three Abilities refer to practicable, replicable and scalable. Whatever is done in the Eco-City should be practicable and replicable in other cities in China on different scales.

The planning and development of the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-City is guided by a comprehensive set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) covering 22 quantitative and 4 qualitative KPIs. The KPIs were jointly formulated by experts from Singapore and China, referring to the national green standards in China and Singapore. Prevailing best international practices and the local conditions in Tianjin were also taken into account. The KPIs, which cover environmental, economic and social development, define the goals and measure the progress of the Eco-City.
