Roadmap for China: Scaling Up Green Bond Market Issuance

This paper provides a roadmap for China to scale up the issuance of green bonds in the domestic market and develop the overseas RMB-denominated market by identifying and addressing the current challenges that limit green bond issuance.

The roadmap sets out actions that can enable an increase in the issuance of green bonds in the near term, as well as actions that will ensure a steady stream of projects suitable for green bond financing will be available over time.

This is the second paper in a series of four discussion papers issued by IISD and the Climate Bonds Initiative on prospects for the Chinese green bond market.

  • Roadmap for China: Green Bond Guidelines for the Next Stage of Market Growth (Paper 1)

  • Roadmap for China: Green securitisation, tax incentives and credit enhancements to scale green bonds (Paper 3)
