    The green economy development mode has become popular these days because of its reduced energy-consumption and low pollution emission. Combining sustainable development with business and finance, together with the construction of environmentally friendly production and consumption, plays an important role in China’s development. Therefore, Peking University HSBC Business School has established the Center for Green Economy to study green finance and green management.
  Take advantage of HSBC Business School’s academic resources and talented professors and students. Get some high-level specialists together and do some research at the macroscopic, industry and enterprise levels. By putting forward a series of international-level scientific achievements, we want to make HSBC Business School more influential academically.
  Integrating teaching with research and consulting with the aim of cultivating students to be outstanding in research ability, we focus on the training of students’ understanding of the green economy and green management
   We provide some green economy-related consulting services to the government, research institutions and private enterprises, by which HSBC Business School becomes more influential in society.
    There are ten researchers in the center. Prof.HUANG Haifeng is the director. Additional researchers are in charge of many projects including those of the United Nations Environment Programme, Ministry of Land and Resources, Ministry of Environmental Protection and Ministry of Science and Technology.
