Any development must be environmentally friendly, because if not friendly then it will be called development destructive environmentally. Sooner or later the cost of environmental damage is very costly to be paid by the public. Are there any countries that do not harm the environment when doing development? ?

I don't know about countries and their policies verbatim but there are states in the United states that are a little more advanced than other states such as Oregon. They have strict development laws. They are very environmentally friendly, it's too complicated to even go into but one of their laws is they plant what they cut.

in most countries, in their development policies, they usually claim that the development policy oriented towards environmental awareness but in reality .... they still do the destruction of the environment

Honestly speaking, I can't think of any technology or development that doesn't really harm our environment or the balance of nature. In my country, there are many land owners who developed fields and even mountains to become subdivisions. They cut the trees and I see their trucks flatten the surface everyday. I am still wondering where the animals living on that mountain have gone. I always heard that industrialization is the way to success but industrialization has made our rivers became one of the dirtiest in the world. I also know some companies who claims to be environmentally friendly and has passed required test to operate but in reality they produce chemicals and wastes that are not only harmful to nature but for people as well.

Personally I don't think there's a country which can develop without harming the environment. Human cannot replace the nature. Land getting smaller, forest getting little, world getting hotter; consequences from the development and human can't do nothing about these.
