Calling upon all nongovernmental sectors of the society is important to cope with the ecological crisis brought about by rapid development. Enterprises are the active agent of socialist market economic activities and possess a prominent position in the ecological civilization construction of the new age. Making use of the active agent role of enterprises and stimulating the green development of enterprises are essential to realizing the dream of a beautiful China. This paper discusses the development and management experiences of a typical ecological industrialization model, that of the Elion Resources Group in Inner Mongolia. Existing problems are disclosed, and feasible suggestions are given: (1) accelerate the registration of lands to protect legitimate rights and interests, (2) perfect the land-use administration system and make it cover all national land space, (3) perfect the natural resources management system, and (4) compile balance sheets of natural resources and strengthen accountabilities.

Key words: ecological management, resource management, land use, green development
