Everbright International is the first organisation to create and develop an environmental protection industrial park model. As of the end of 2017, Everbright International opened 12 parks with Chinese characteristics in Suzhou, Changzhou, Suqian, Zhenjiang New Area, Yixing, Lianyungang Xuyu New Area, Nanjing, Xinyi of Jiangsu Province, Weifang of Shandong Province, Ganzhou of Jiangxi Province, Lankao County and Ruzhou of Henan Province. In line with its philosophy of "Integrated Planning, Logical Arrangements, Better Land Utilization and Centralized Handling", and following its principles of "Implementing Projects with One Success Followed by Another", the company has made full use of local resources within the parks and shared infrastructure in order to recycle solid waste and increase the levels of energy conservation and effectively reduce emissions. The ultimate goal is to achieve nil discharge, and establish the parks as modern environmental protection industrial parks, as well as turn them into bases for promoting industrial tourism and environmental protection education.
