A long-awaited China Green Bond Endorsed Project Catalogue (2020 version) is out for public consultation!
Dr. Ma Jun, Chairman and President of HKGFA, commented: the removal of utilisation of clean fossil fuel based energy in the Catalogue 2020 demonstrated China’s action in tackling climate change issue while pursuing pollution control and efficient utilisation of natural resources, which is highly aligned with its commitment in implementing the Paris Agreement.
The Catalogue 2020 draft issued by The People’s Bank of China (PBoC), National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) includes the following principles:
- Aligning with NDRC “Green Industry Guiding Catalogue (2019 version)”;
- Screening green projects with significant and positive environmental impacts in addressing climate change, circular economy, and environment improvement;
- Taking mainstream international green finance taxonomy into consideration and continuously improving internationalization level of the Catalogue.
HKGFA encourages our members to participate in the public consultation and submit your feedback to PBoC via email@example.com by 14th June directly.
