Xiamen ranked No.2 in terms of sustainable urban development among 112 Chinese pilot cities in 2011, reports Strait Herald.

According to the 2011 Urban Sustainability Index released by UCI (Urban China Initiative) recently, Beijing topped the list, followed by Xiamen, Haikou, Dalian, Shanghai, Suzhou, Guangzhou, Tianjin, Zhongshan and Wuxi.

The new research suggests that most of China's major cities have stepped into a new stage of urbanization. Studies of 112 major Chinese cities in the report show that the higher a city’s per capita income, the better the city’s overall sustainability performance.

UCI, a Beijing-based nongovernmental organization jointly launched by McKinsey & Company, Tsinghua University, and Columbia University in 2010, aims to catalyze the next stage of China's urbanization by supporting world-class research and practice on critical issues.
