Introduction of Tsinghua PBCSF Green Finance Lectures
Nowadays, sustainable development and climate change are the mainstream of world development, in which green finance plays an irreplaceable role. There have been hot debates and discussions in China and worldwide on questions such as how to balance the relationship between environmental protection, climate change and economic development, how to effectively combine market and government efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and is there a most efficient pathway of low-carbon transition.
Against this background, we launched the “Tsinghua PBCSF Green Finance Lectures” that are hosted by Tsinghua University PBC School of Finance (PBCSF) and organized by the Center for Green Finance Research (CGFR) of Tsinghua University National Institute of Financial Research (NIFR), with an aim to explore the future development of green finance and carbon neutrality targets. We invite domestic and international leading experts from academia, industry and government to give lectures on cutting-edge issues such as Carbon Neutrality, green finance, ESG and climate risk, for faculty members, students at Tsinghua and also audiences beyond Tsinghua’s community. This lecture series are held online on a bi-weekly basis and live broadcasted on all platforms of Tsinghua PBCSF.
