Financing China’s Low Carbon Growth
Financing China’s Low Carbon Growth is the first comprehensive review of China’s strategy on financing its low carbon economy. The report explores:
- The fiscal and financial policies and instruments in place to meet China’s goals;
- The evolving role of Chinese financial institutions in supporting climate and energy goals;
- Opinions on the level of investment today and the investment needed going forward; and
- Current challenges and barriers to progress
Our research is based on review of existing literature and our own interviews of 20 experts closely involved in Chinese policy development and tracking, including representatives from the Ministry of Finance, National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), Tsinghua University, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. The main report also reviews a number of sectoral and regional case studies, including the role of Hong Kong as a financial and knowledge center.
