Background information

The $100 trillion global debt markets are a dominant source of capital and are a core component of the capital investment pipeline. Bonds account for a significant share of institutional investors’ portfolios. The proportion that is labelled green is a small, but growing rapidly.

With low carbon and climate resilient infrastructure investment an increasing global priority, the market potential for green bonds is enormous – but where and how?
