The Reporting on Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Initiative in 2021
1. Practicing the concept of sustainable blue economy finance
A sustainable blue economy is one that seeks to promote economic growth and preserve and improve livelihoods across a range of sectors, while ensuring the sustainable use of marine resources.The development of blue economy needs financial services and financial support. the Bank is actively responding to the policy call of the Central Committee of the CPC, Fujian Province and Fuzhou City, and clearly took marine finance as the main direction of the Bank's characteristic and differentiated development. On 27 January 2021, the Bank became the 31st signatory to the United Nations Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Initiative. The Initiative aims to have a positive impact on ocean-related mainstream investment, insurance and loans with the practical actions of financial institutions, create a sustainable blue economy, and support the realization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) is the management organization of the Initiative, to help and guide banks, insurers and investors to promote the adoption and implementation of the 14 Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Principles. These principles provide a guiding framework for sustainable marine economic financing, and cover investments and projects that support sustainable marine economic development, identification of and focus on relevant compliance and risks, appropriate disclosure of economic, environmental and social effects, active sharing of experience in supporting sustainable marine economic development, and other content.
Through their products, services and relationships, financial institutions can help preserve and safeguard oceans, financing the transition to a sustainable blue economy. The implementation of these principles will contribute to the protection and sustainable utilization of the oceans and the reduction of investment risks in the blue economy. Joining the Initiative will not only help banks to deepen and improve their own green financial product innovation, environmental and social risk management, but also promote “Ocean Health” through financial services, accelerate the sustainable utilization and transformation of marine resources, and promote green development with the blue economy.
2. Promoting the development of sustainable blue economy finance
In order to promote the development of the marine economy, strengthen the financial services for marine enterprises, and explore the construction of blue economy service system, the Bank concluded strategic cooperation agreements with Fujian Provincial Bureau of Ocean and Fisheries, etc. We committed to continuously improve the marine financial ecology, and worked together to provide diversified and high-quality financial services for the marine economy.
In 2021, we continued to support projects such as marine sewage treatment to protect the marine ecological environment, in accordance with the practical guidelines for financial institutions issued by the Sustainable Blue Economy Finance Initiative. The Bank has innovatively launched "Company + Farmer Aquaculture Loan" and "Yellow Croaker Loan" to actively serve the financing needs of sea-related individuals, support artificial breeding, prevent overfishing and develop marine biodiversity.
