Green Bonds in China

Green Bonds in China

In order to mobilize capital at scale urgently required to achieve China’s commitment to peak in its carbon dioxide emissions around 2030 and reduce carbon intensity 60-65 percent below 2005 levels, the green bond pioneer Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken (SEB) and GIZ’s Emerging Markets Dialogue on Finance, jointly with their Chinese partners, seek to support the development of a prosperous and sustainable green bond market in China.

To promote highest environmental, market and transparency standards, the Strategic Alliance (STA) aims to raise awareness, enhance practical knowledge and build professional capacity on green bonds as (re-)financing and investment tool. Core activities comprise a workshop series, roundtables, symposia and individual advisory support for key stakeholder groups, including potential issuers, investors, underwriters, regulators & policy makers, as well as external verifiers.

The events serve to provide a platform for learning and knowledge exchange through engagement with leading international and domestic green bond experts who share their profound knowledge and hands-on technical expertise on the pillars that constitute a robust green bond framework.
