Transition Finance Series - China in focus: Driving capital towards carbon neutrality by 2060
The world is seeing new hope in combating Climate Change as a growing number of carbon neutrality pledges are announced by both developed economies and emerging markets. In Asia, China took the lead in setting the target to reach peak emissions before 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060, followed by Japan and South Korea. That said, the decarbonisation journey would not be possible without a gigantic amount of investment in low carbon transitions activities at speed and scale.

The Climate Bonds’ landmark paper Financing Credible Transitions (FCT) released with Credit Suisse in September 2020, is a proposal for credible transition finance. This is an enormous opportunity for investors to play in role in addressing climate change whilst exploring new markets and diversifying portfolios. The strategic framework we outlined not only acts as a guide for economic activities to define their role in a global economy-wide transition, but also gives principles to avoid potential accusations of ‘greenwashing’.

This webinar will explore the three common features of a credible transition- Ambitious, Flexible, and Inclusive- and how they can be applied to foster the rapid development of transition finance in China.
