U.S.-China Green Fund
China is committed to deploying cutting-edge technologies to reduce energy use and carbon emissions. The U.S.-China Building Energy Efficiency and Green Development Fund, a public-private partnership established in 2015 with the help of the Paulson Institute, aims to provide financing to bring U.S. technologies to bear in the fight against pollution in China.
The Fund also serves as a model for funding crucial clean-tech investment. In June 2016, the Fund signed letters of intent for its first investment projects, in cooperation with the municipal governments of Zhenjiang, in Jiangsu province, and Zhangjiakou, in Hebei province.
The Paulson Institute serves as a non-commercial advisor to the Fund, which is committed to promoting green development to reduce carbon emissions that lead to climate change.
