China policy 中国政策页面

China is rapidly moving ahead with policy and regulatory reforms to better align its financial sector with national sustainability and carbon neutrality objectives.

The PRI’s policy team in China is working to support policy makers and regulators across a wide range of policy priorities, including strengthening corporate ESG disclosure requirements, clarifying asset owner’s legal duties, building stronger frameworks for effective stewardship, and providing thought leadership on aligning investments with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). See further details below of PRI’s work supporting stronger sustainable finance policy in China.

The PRI recognises that taxonomies are a key tool for redirecting financial flows towards economic activities that meet robust sustainability standards and are aligned with high-level policy commitments, therefore, the CGT could be a useful tool to increase the interoperability of taxonomies, on the condition that clarifications and improvements are made regarding its purpose, science-basis, methodology and presentation of criteria.
