Abstract: Green finance has become a new growth-promoting model for green development during national transformation, upgrading, and restructuring. The concept of green development central to the “Belt and Road Initiative” since it was put forward, and Chinese enterprises “going global” have actively practised the concept of jointly building the “Green Belt and Road”. Thus, huge green investment potential has been generated, which offers a broad market for new green products and green technology. The co-construction of the “Green Belt and Road” continues to drive the demand and potential for green investment, which must greatly promote the economic and social sustainability for countries and regions along the “Belt and Road”. In this context, by sorting out the green process of China’s foreign direct investment (FDI), this chapter attempts to explore the possible supporting methods for green investment under the BRI framework.
