[Recorded in March 2021] In our last episode of Season 2, we speak with Dr. Ma Jun, founder and president of the Institute of Finance and Sustainability (IFS) in Beijing. IFS brings together leading finance experts at the national and local levels in China to promote green finance. Areas of focus include International Collaboration, Energy and Climate Change, ESG Investment, Greentech Innovation and Investment, and Financing Nature-Based Solutions. In addition to their domestic work, they also support green finance internationally, especially along the Belt and Road. In addition to leading IFS, Ma Jun is a member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) and is the former Chief Economist of their research bureau.
Learn about the origins of IFS, the financial policies that can help China decarbonize the economy, and what’s in store for the next five years of aligning the Chinese economy with an ecological civilization. In this last episode, we answer the question of how much China needs to invest each year to reach its net zero goal. And Marilyn and Andrew tell us how they really feel about green taxonomies.
