China ESG

Overview

China has formulated a 2030 carbon peak and 2060 carbon neutrality plan, and its investment in clean energy such as photovoltaics and wind power and the scale of financial instruments such as green bonds are at the forefront of the world.

China’s ESG development has attracted the attention of many international institutions. The Asia Investor Group on Climate Change has set up a China working group, and the International Sustainability Standards Board has opened an office in Beijing. 

China is also cooperating with other jurisdictions on ESG policies. The Monetary Authority of Singapore and the People’s Bank of China have jointly established a green finance working group, and the European Union is also developing a common taxonomy with China.
