Shenzhen has extensive green construction experience as one of China’s new green development pilot cities. Shenzhen has experienced substantial economic growth as a result of the reform and opening up, but it has also had to face the burden of urbanization problems and difficulties. This article looks at the history of green construction in Shenzhen and how the spirit of the city influenced it. The work then divides the procedure into two phases and examines the issues that arise. Suggestions for achieving the “Double Carbon” aim in the building industry are sought through this effort.
