Nick Robins represented the Inquiry at this meeting hosted by the China Council for International Cooperation and Deutsche Bank in London.

“China’s ongoing efforts to transform its economy with renewable energy and begin a process of green financial reform are groundbreaking and very encouraging. The country has the opportunity to leapfrog the West by focusing the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank, the Silk Road Infrastructure Fund and their domestic financial policies on facilitating environmental protection and a low-carbon economy.”
