As of June 30, a total of 136 labeled green bonds were issued in China in the first half of this year, with a total issuance scale of 109.55 billion yuan, accounting for nearly 30% of global green bond issuance over the same period, according to the latest statistics from Wind platform.
With the implementation of the corporate bond registration system and the needs of industry development, China's green bond issuance once again ushered in the "peak season" in the first half of the year.
This year, the biggest winner in green bond issuance was Huaxia Bank.
On April 21, Hua Xia Bank issued an announcement regarding the completion of the first issue of green financial bonds in 2020, called "20 Hua Xia Bank Green Finance 01". Its bookkeeping was established on April 15, 2020, and it was released on April 17.
China's green bond market has been vigorously promoted by various policies and developed rapidly.
Especially in recent years, relevant departments have issued a series of measures to support the development of green finance and green bonds. In particular, the implementation of the corporate bond registration system this year has strongly promoted the issuance of green corporate bonds this year.
In the latter half of 2020, on July 3, Changxing Xianshanhu Tourism Investment Development issued an announcement that the company had issued a special corporate bond for green project earnings in 2020 (the first phase).
