With the adoption of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement, ADB’s involvement should not be ignored. The Global Environment Facility (GEF) and ADB have teamed up to provide climate change financing for developing countries. Included in this is climate protection finance, the financing method that offers cash to assist the region in achieving ecological responsibility. Using a systematic framework, the researchers in this study examined the rationale for building a cohort result of green management in China in the new phase of the country’s development. As part of a multiplicative framework, the long-term correlation between variables is quantified using the dynamic common correlated effect (D-CCE) and interactive fixed effect. According to the findings, renewable energy and green financing are good environmental indicators. Environmental degradation is negatively affected by green governance. Some people are concerned about how to dispose of ICT, yet on the other side, ICT can help cut carbon emissions with new clean technologies. Moreover, the findings show that urbanization and per capita income increase carbon emissions. The results suggest that Chinese officials need to support reducing carbon emissions through the development of ICT infrastructure, green financing, and renewable energy.
