This paper reviews the progress of carbon trading in China and examines the involvement of the state and financial sectors. The results show a hierarchical relationship between the state and finance and a clear asymmetry of power in the organization of China’s carbon markets. It concludes that China has put the market-based policy instrument of carbon trading under a substantial concentration of state power. Also, the findings have important implications for understanding the rise of carbon markets in non-traditional capitalist economies
