Climate Bonds Initiative has released its first guide highlighting financial instruments and mechanisms available from and for public and private entities in the ASEAN region looking to fund green assets. Funding deals for such assets can entail a combination of different sources of financing, depending on the company, asset characteristics and macroeconomic factors. The publication covers public-private partnerships (PPP) and other equity instruments, but has a significant focus on debt financing, particularly green bonds, sukuk and loans.
The guide provides information on credit enhancement mechanisms and specialist funds which can help issuers access the debt capital markets, and provides brief case studies to demonstrate how some of them have been used by green bond issuers.
