On March 3, 2015, the Strategic Cooperation Seminar on "Promoting Green Leasing and Promoting Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection" between Agricultural Bank of China Financial Leasing Co., Ltd., Beijing State owned Assets Financial Leasing Co., Ltd., and Beijing Environmental Exchange was successfully held at the Beijing Environmental Exchange.
As a market-oriented institutional arrangement, green finance plays a very important role in promoting environmental protection and ecological construction. In recent years, the international research and practice on green finance is in the ascendant. However, we should also see that the financing issues hidden behind the development of China's energy-saving and environmental protection industry are increasingly prominent. From the financial perspective, the energy conservation and environmental protection industry has the characteristics of decentralized layout, low concentration ratio, high policy dependence, large investment, long time and other financing characteristics. The common problem of light assets in energy-saving and environmental protection enterprises makes it difficult for them to obtain funds through traditional channels. The use of financial means to promote the upgrading of energy-saving industries and the use of market mechanisms to promote the transformation of energy structure is an important direction for the current transformation of energy-saving work and a key requirement for financial promotion of industrial development.
At present, green finance represented by financial leasing is an important direction of financial reform and innovation. All participants expressed that the period from the 12th Five Year Plan to 2020 is a rare historical opportunity for the development of China's energy conservation and environmental protection industry. The three parties will conduct comprehensive cooperation around business models such as joint leasing, subleasing, and entrusted leasing. They will fully utilize their respective technological, experience, and resource advantages in project excavation, risk assessment, implementation, fund docking, and policy subsidy application of financing leasing, and work closely together, Start a new model of cooperation between financing leasing companies and market trading institutions, jointly create a heavyweight platform for exploring, financing, trading, and disposing of energy conservation and environmental protection industry resources, continuously promote the integration of energy conservation and environmental protection industry resources at the financial level, standardize resource allocation transactions in the energy conservation and environmental protection industry, improve resource allocation efficiency, and make new contributions to China's energy conservation and environmental protection industry to achieve major breakthroughs and development in the new historical period.
