SHANGHAI -- Japan's Mizuho Bank will serve as a principal underwriter for China's first green bond that consists only of income streams from loans for low- and zero-emission cars as Beijing pursues an ambitious climate change goal.

The 910 million yuan ($142 million) offering will be created from loan claims held by a financial company affiliated with state-owned automaker SAIC Motor. Terms of the sale will be decided as soon as Tuesday.
