A document titled "Study on the Regional Difference of Ecological Civilization in China", which is said to be the first rating on the ecological civilization of Chinese provinces and cities since the term 'ecological civilization construction' was put forward, has been formally published.

As a publication of the State Social Philosophical Scientific Foundation Research Program, which represents the highest level of social science research in China, "Study on the Regional Difference of Ecological Civilization in China" has, for the first time, revealed the status quo of the development of ecological civilization in China with the aim of promoting the sustainable development of regional economy and society, implementing a scientific outlook on development, and building a harmonious society.

Through scientific calculations, the document has ranked Chinese provinces and cities (excluding Tibet Autonomous Region) in terms of their ecological civilization level, and the order is Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong, Zhejiang, Fujian, Jiangsu, Tianjin, Guangxi, Shandong, Chongqing, Sichuan, Jiangxi, Henan, Hunan, Hubei, Hainan, Anhui, Shaanxi, Heilongjiang, Jilin, Qinghai, Hebei, Liaoning, Xinjiang, Yunnan, Gansu, Inner Mongolia, Guizhou, Ningxia, and Shanxi.

Ecological civilization is also called Eco-efficiency and is commonly abbreviated as EEI. Broadly speaking, EEI means how efficiently ecological resources are used to meet the demands of the human inhabitants of a region.
