What is the Chinese domestic Green Bond Channel?

The Chinese domestic Green Bond Channel is an information channel which bridges the information gap between Chinese issuers and international investors. Green bonds listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange can be traded via existing channels and the cooperation with LuxSE focuses on providing exhaustive information in English to offshore investors.


What is a Chinese domestic green bond?

Depending upon the nature of the Chinese domestic issuer, they are subject to different green bond guidelines which will define what constitutes eligible projects to be financed by a Chinese domestic green bond. The following guidelines exist:

  • Green bonds issued by financial entities are subject to the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) Green Bond Endorsed Project Catalogue
  • Green domestic corporate bonds (and in general non-listed companies) are subject to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) Green Bond Guidelines
  • Green bonds issued by listed companies and corporate asset backed securities are subject to the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) Guidelines for Supporting Green Bond Development

Note that (as per CBI) the PBOC Green Bond Endorsed Project Catalogue accepts retrofits of fossil fuel power stations, clean coal and coal efficiency improvements, and rail lines that mainly transport fossil fuels, which are not accepted under the Climate Bonds Initiative’s eligibility taxonomy.

More information about the Chinese guidelines is available here.
