Green Finance and the Role of Government (13 October 2017)Ma Jun
Green finance has grown exponentially in recent years and — fortunately for the planet — shows no sign of stopping. In 2016, global issuance of green bonds reached $84bn, more than doubling 2015’s total, with many countries issuing them for the first time. In the first nine months of 2017, global green bond issuance rose 54% year-over-year. In China, at least 50 green investment funds were recently launched, and new green financial products have popped up like mushrooms.
