Internet finance refers to an emerging financial model implementing fund accommodation, as well as payment and infomediary services, by means of Internet and mobile communication technologies. It is different from indirect financing by commercial banks and the direct financing model in capital markets. Internet finance has three basic business organization forms: Online micro-credit company, third-party payment company, and financial intermediary company. Electronic banking, on-line banking, and mobile banking, generalized universally by commercial banks, make up this category.
Green finance means the financial sector regards environmental protection as a basic policy, any potential environmental impact shall be considered in investment and financing decisions, and the potential return, risk, and cost correlated with environmental conditions shall be merged into day-to-day financial business. Financial business operations under green finance pay attention to the protection of the ecological environment and the abatement of environmental pollution. The sustainable development of society is also promoted under the guidance of socioeconomic resources.
This Special Issue provides a practical and comprehensive forum for exchanging novel research ideas or empirical practices that bridge Internet finance, green finance and sustainability. Internet finance and green finance are a developing trend, and have been global topics. We must grasp this trend.
