Green Bonds - A Time to Act

Event type: 
Event date: 
Feb 17, 2021

The episode explores the role of a ‘Green Bond’ government bond to capitalise on growing investor interest in assets designed to fund environmentally friendly spending. While we see the use of proceeds divided in solutions focusing mainly on energy, buildings, transport and water, we also see the dominance of developed markets issuing 72% of the green bonds and emerging markets with less than 20%. The Joint SDG Fund was created to be part of the solution, to help low income countries in their sustainable transition to accelerate the Sustainable Development Goals.
