    PBC released a report that presents the developments in green finance in China in 2018. The report covers progress made in the development of green finance standards, the writing of Green Industry Guidance Catalog (2019), the performance assessment of green credit offered by depository financial institutions in the banking sector, and the self-regulatory mechanisms of the green finance industry.
