Changning takes the top spot as ‘Shanghai’s greenest district’

Changning ranked first among 16 districts in Shanghai for its environmental performance in the second half of 2020.

At the same time, five of its communities, such as Chengjiaqiao, Hongqiao, Xinhua and Jiangsu Road, are among the city’s best communities that care about the environment, according to the Shanghai Greenery and Public Sanitation Bureau.

The bureau carried out the rating in the second half of last year, involving all the 220 communities, towns and industrial zones of the city’s 16 districts.

It was last year that Changning further improved the overall environment through fine tuning measures. The district launched construction of beautiful neighborhood and improved public facilities and street view for the third China International Import Exp.

It also implemented eco-friendly construction and is promoting garbage sorting throughout the district.

Local authorities released the results of the public satisfaction survey on Shanghai’s sanitation during the second half of 2020 on January 27.

Overall, the city’s public sanitation and environment scored 81.04, or good, in the last six months of 2020 - compared with 80.98 in the first half of the year - up 0.19 from the same period in 2019, according to the Shanghai Greenery and Public Sanitation Bureau.

The ratings consist of 13 ranked categories and 39 indexes and have five levels based on scores — excellent (above 85), good (80-85), OK (75-80), so-so (70-75) and bad (below 70).

For the first time, all 13 ranked categories were rated “good” based on the city’s evaluation, with six improving since the first half of last year.

Those 13 categories are roads, buildings, residential complexes, green spaces, construction sites, wet markets, transportation hubs, areas near campuses, public toilets, areas near hospitals, water areas, vehicles and services.

All of the city’s downtown districts were good in all 13 categories.

Public sanitation and the environment in nine districts — Changning, Xuhui, Jing’an, Huangpu, Pudong, Yangpu, Hongkou, Qingpu and Minhang — were rated good with the rest OK.
