    Green Finance and Regulation

    In recent years, many global financial institutions, especially banks, have made a commitment to pursue “green finance.” While all sectors of society have focused on green and sustainable practices, green finance specifically refers to the potential environmental impact of investment and financing decisions. How can green financial products guide funds to resource-saving technology development and environmentally sustainable industries? How can these options guide businesses to focus on green production, thereby promoting the increased capacity and green industrial development? How can they facilitate the implementation of a green finance strategy?

    Green Economy and Industrial Development

    The development of the “green industry,” using natural resources and energy to consciously protect the ecological balance, plays an essential role in the technological revolution and the transformation and upgrading of industrial capacity. With the further promotion of industrial restructuring focusing on clean energy, what impact will the development of green industry have on the overall industrial structure, sustainable development, and industrial ecology? How will enterprises adjust their strategic planning to adapt to this green technological revolution?
