From the perspective of green credit, the theoretical analysis of the impact of green credit on the financial performance of commercial banks. Based on the panel data of 15 commercial banks from 2012 to 2018, the impact mechanism is empirically analyzed. The results show that in the short-term, green credit has a negative impact on the financial performance of commercial banks, and the adverse impact faced by small and medium-sized commercial banks is significantly higher than that of large commercial banks, showing a heterogeneous effect. This also reveals the effect of commercial banks in implementing green credit. Reasons for low initiative and enthusiasm. In view of this, it puts forward specific policy recommendations for different types of commercial banks, and believes that they should effectively promote green credit business in terms of differentiated policy guidelines and increasing the training of interdisciplinary talents.
