China EU Future City is the pilot project under the EU-China Partnership on Urbanisation which was launched at the EU-China Summit on 14th February 2012 in Beijing by Premier Wen Jiabao and the EU leaders. The partnership aims at promoting exchanges and cooperation in a wide range of sustainable urban development.

The CEFC will be the demonstration project for this newly established relationship to fully implement the sustainable strategies for China's urbanisation.

The project will showcase the application of European and Chinese products and designs in order to promote and encourage further advancements towards sustainable urbanisation.

The CEFC demonstrates the sustainable and environmental-friendly perspective in three stages:

  • During the construction phase (design and incorporation of technologies)
  • During the setup phase (getting the right mix of companies who focus on urbanisation and have sustainable products).
  • During the life-cycle of the park with minimum emission and successful businesses
