SMART Talks: Rule of Law in Decarbonization

Session Introduction: Laws and regulations play a big role in solving environmental problems. It is expected that mandatory laws and regulations can promote environment protection and related ESG engagement among more stakeholders on a larger scale. In this talk, Gao Xiqing proposes that we need a strong government, which can turn the environmental problems into legal problems and empower related authorities. He will also share his experience involved with how China Investment Corporation (CIC) formulated the “three no” policy to guide investment.

Gao Xiqing is Hongtian Chair Professor of Law School at the University of International Business and Economics, former Vice Chairman, President and CIO of the China Investment Corporation. Prior to that, Gao has working experiences both in Wall Street and Chinese financial regulatory bodies.
