The UK and China are increasingly taking action on green bonds and more broadly on developing green finance. Increased UK-China collaboration could help speed up the growth of the global green bond market and the green aspects of the financial system. The UK-China Collaboration on Growing a Global Green Bond Market report sets actions for UK-China collaboration to lead the development of the global green bond market.
The report was prepared by Climate Bonds Initiative and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), together with the UK Department of International Trade. It is one of the four Roadmap for China’s Green Bond Market 2016 reports. This 2016 series of discussion papers follow the March 2014 How to Grow Green Bonds in China report and the Growing a green bonds market in China: Key recommendations for policymakers in the context of China’s changing financial landscape report of March 2015.
