16. Wuhan

Wuhan, with a population of 8.4 million and a GDP per capita of $8,100, ranks average overall in the index.

The city faces environmental challenges due to rapid growth and an economic base dominated by emissions-intensive industries.

In 2007, the government designated Wuhan an experimental zone for sustainability policies.

The city has now put greater emphasis on several environmental initiatives and on lower-carbon industries and services, suggesting that it can improve its overall environmental performance going forward.
