China Sustainable Investment Forum Summer Summit 2022

Green finance is considered to carry a much broader connotation as the market has developed rapidly in recent years and the green financial system continues to evolve. In the past, green finance focused more on financial support for green projects such as new energy and green buildings. Nowadays, green finance should also finance the transition from fossil fuels and stock market assets such as traditional buildings to green and low carbon assets. As such, financial support for the aforementioned transition targets could be a powerful incentive to move from the “double-checking target” for energy consumption to a “double-checking target” for overall carbon emissions and carbon intensity, thus contributing to the quality development of the Chinese economy.


The theme of the SIF China Summer Summit in 2022 will be Transition Finance Development, exploring the opportunities and challenges of transition finance development in China in terms of policy drivers, incentive mechanisms, innovation of products and financial instruments.
