At the UN Climate Ambition Summit in December 2020, on behalf of China, General Secretary Xi promised the world to reach the carbon peak by 2030 and carbon neutral by 2060. On March 15th, 2021, at the ninth meeting of the Central Finance and Economics Committee, it was clear that achieving carbon peak and carbon neutral is a broad and profound economic and social system change, and it is necessary to integrate carbon peak and carbon neutral into the overall layout of ecological civilization construction, we will have to work hard to achieve the goal of carbon peak by 2030 and carbon neutral by 2060 as scheduled.
To achieve the goal of carbon peaking and carbon neutrality, it is urgent to invest a lot of funds in green and low-carbon fields such as emission reduction and clean energy. Finance can make up the gap between supply and demand of investment, encourage the development of green and low-carbon projects, attract more social capital into related industries, and achieve the policy goal of relying on market-oriented means to complete the development of low-carbon and green economic transformation. How can finance help and guide the development of carbon neutral related technologies and industries? How to lay out and seize the opportunity of the times? How to introduce ESG (environmental, social and governance) into investment? How to promote environmental information disclosure and green standards convergence?
The 2021 (4th) annual finance forum of Business School of Renmin University of China and EE Finance Association will invite authoritative experts and industry leaders to come together to discuss the present and future of China’s green finance, so as to enable Chinese enterprises to grasp a new round of market development opportunities, and promote industrial upgrading and sustainable development of green economy.
