ABSTRACT

The purpose of the research is that China develops low-carbon economy and strengthens low-carbon economy research by learning other countries experiences, which literatures in the papers introduced. The principal results of the paper is that the paper done up right literatures review of carbon finance and low carbon economy. The major contribution is that the paper finds that China is facing the challenges of the global carbon finance problem and the lack of its pricing power.
