In recent years, green finance has attracted extensive attention in various fields all over the world. This study selected 739 high-quality references collected from the core database of Web of Science from 1990 to 2019, and conducted a comprehensive scientometrics review by using CiteSpace. The results show that: (1) the collaborative relationship between countries is relatively weak, and the representation of developing countries in the global research network is still insufficient. (2) subdivided themes can be summarized as: international green financing policies based on the macro framework, green financial instruments, bilateral donor behavior and political choices, etc. Among them, green financial instruments has become a hot pot in recent years. (3) cost reduction, corporate social responsibility, green investment and innovation, energy consumption control, and renewable energy issues have attracted academic attention in recent years, the improvement of environment in developing countries and carbon market have also become hot topics.
