On January 6, the People’s Bank of China stated to implement major “carbon peak” (CCP promised CO2 emissions will reach peak in 2030 and no longer grow) and “carbon neutral” (offset CO2 emissions by tree planting, energy saving etc.) decisions, and improve the green financial policy framework and incentive mechanism, guiding financial resources flow to green industry.
While green bonds are undoubtedly one of the most important forces in green financing, the domestic labelled green bond market has grown to approximately US$120 billion, making it the world’s second largest green bond market.
