CHINA GREEN BOND MARKET INTRO
Since the Agricultural Bank of China (ABC) became the first Chinese institution to issue a Renminbi-denominated Green Bond in October 2015, China's green bond market has exploded. China was the largest country of issue in 2016, as of October 2016, and propelled by strong government support for green finance, the market is estimated to grow to USD 230bn within the next five years (Bloomberg).
However there are concerns on creditworthiness and differences between China's green standards and those adopted internationally.
