A Green Fund Standard for China

This report was published by Shenzhen Emissions Exchange in May 2019, with support from Energy Foundation China. After reviewing green finance standards and practices domestically and internationally, as well as fund operation in China, this research report summarized core requirements for green private equity and venture capital funds, and proposed policy recommendations on how China’s green fund standard should be with respect to standard indicators, labeling requirements, and evaluation and certification by third parties. As part of the National Green Finance Standardization Program, this report proposed a system for standardized green fund evaluation and certification, which is conducive to guiding the sustainable growth of green funds, encouraging more responsible green investors, and thus increasing industry financing.
