The Postal Savings Bank of China (PSBC), the Chinese Society for Environmental Sciences Climate Investment and Finance Association (CIFA) and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) jointly held an online report release and seminar on climate-friendly transition of commercial banks under the goal of carbon neutrality, where PSBC’s Green Finance Research Group released a report entitled "Research on Low-carbon Transition Paths for Commercial Banks under the Goal of Carbon Neutrality", one of the research reports from a CIFA-led project.
This report is another major achievement PSBC has made in the field of green finance, following the publication of a book entitled Research on Climate Financing of Commercial Banks in January 2022. The report has analyzed the conceptual connotation and theoretical basis of carbon neutral banking, summarized the experience of PSBC and other banks at home and abroad in exploring low-carbon transition and going carbon neutral, and put forward suggestions on low-carbon transition paths for commercial banks in China.
