Sustainable Financing in China Virtual Series

Date: 29 April 2022

Amid a national push for net-zero emissions by 2060 and the growing appetite of international investors, China's green bond market is headed for another busy year, after reaching a new high in 2021, and surpassing its previous record of US$56.18 billion in 2019. 

Further to China's proposal to exclude fossil fuel projects from the list of eligible green projects, this has brought the nation's green taxonomy closer to global standards, which has already lured more international investors to the onshore green bond market.

GlobalCapital Events and Euromoney Conferences will host a series of webinars on China’s sustainability-linked bond market, to explore the opportunities, challenges, and long-term potential for investing in the sustainable market. Each webinar will build on the previous discussion, giving investors, analysts, bankers, and other interested parties a guide to China’s green and sustainable financing markets.


China leading the renewable energy investment drive

China has been the biggest investor in renewable energy over the last decade, spending nearly $760 billion between 2010 and 2019, doubling the investment made by the U.S. and with, Europe coming in in a close second, with $698 billion invested. 

Before COP26 in November, China had further released a framework for its path towards peak emissions and carbon neutrality and pledged to be carbon neutral by 2060. What is China doing and how are we preparing to achieve this goal? 

  • What are the development values and trends for renewable energy? 
  • Is this the right time to invest in renewable energy?
  • In what ways is the government supporting the investment of green energy? 
  • Facing challenges such as grid constraints, key material shortages, and cost inflation, will it be able to realistically meet the climate goals?
