    Low Carbon Development

    Carbon Finance Project Development
    As a new branch of environmental finance, carbon finance explores the financial implications of living in a carbon-constrained world, a world in which emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) carry a price. 

    In 1992, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was signed by most countries in the world to consider what can be done to reduce global warming and to cope with the impacts of climate change. In 1997, a number of nations approved an addition to the treaty: the Kyoto Protocol, which sets binding targets for 37 industrialized countries and the European community to reduce their GHG emissions. As a mechanism deriving from the Kyoto Protocol, the aim of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is to enable the industrialized countries to achieve their GHG emission targets at lower cost, and for the developing world to benefit from investments in low-carbon technologies. Along with GHG emission trading systems, these mechanisms are the cornerstone of so-called carbon market. Emission-reduction projects in developing countries can earn emission reduction credits also known as carbon credits. Industrialized countries can use the certified carbon credits, released from a rigorous certification process, to meet part of their emission reduction targets. 

    In order to fulfill corporate social responsibilities, some companies and NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) also voluntarily purchase carbon credits to contribute in addressing climate change issues. The most well-known certification standard in the international voluntary carbon market is the Gold Standard (GS). The GS is a voluntary carbon offset standard for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. The GS can be applied to voluntary offset projects and to CDM projects. Currently, carbon finance project development cycle is generally 1.5-2.5 years. 

    China is building a national unified voluntary carbon market. As part of the Chinese government’s efforts to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emitted per unit of GDP by 40 to 45 percent from 2005 levels by 2020, Chinese government is launching its first carbon trading scheme as a pilot project in Shenzhen in 2013. The scheme will be rolled out to six other areas by 2014 and go nationwide after 2015.

    What kinds of projects are suitable for carbon finance?
    A renewable energy or energy efficiency project developed by an enterprise or an NGO that meets any of the following three requirements:

    • ·       Requires additional funding to support project development, eg: the project cannot proceed without the funding.
    • ·       Requires additional funding to improve project implementation results.
    • ·       The technology utilized in the project has less than 20% utilization rate in the project implementation area.
