The Climate Bonds Market Intelligence Team completed a report on the ASEAN member countries +3 that provided an overview of the sustainable finance landscape in each market that included the regulatory framework and market developments in terms of product innovation and range of financing/funding instruments utilized.


We would like to encourage a conversation with ASEAN central banks, regulator and financial market about the report’s findings between policy makers, investors, intermediaries and issuers on how to move forward to enable breadth and depth of the sustainable finance market in ASEAN+3.
