In response to the rising interest in sustainable finance accentuated by the COVID-19 pandemic, Climate Bonds published an interim report as of the first half (H1) of 2020. 

Part of the Global State of the Market series, this new report goes beyond previous similar reports, including the recently launched Green Bonds Global State of the Market 2019, which have primarily focused on analysing the green bond market. 

The first part of the report overviews green bonds issuance in H1 2020. 

It also contains first-ever historic analysis by Climate Bonds of other debt themes – sustainability, social and pandemic bonds – covering the period up to H1 2020. 

This represents an initial step in the expansion of Climate Bonds’ market data coverage & commentary to include other debt labels, which will culminate in the launch of a separate social and sustainability bond database in late Oct/Nov. 

The second part of the report presents a detailed global overview of existing, planned, potential measures related to sustainable finance. 

These frame the development universe for diverse set of stakeholders, from governments to central banks and investors, with an underlying them around the need for a green and sustainable recovery globally in a post-COVID world.

Leading Climate Ideas: Covid Aftermath: Can Sustainable Finance Help India Shape a Green and Inclusive Recovery?

Covid 19 has brought into sharp focus the urgent need to make economies more resilient. In the case of India, which was already reeling under economic slowdown, the pandemic has further exacerbated the structural fault lines of our growth pathway and patterns of production and consumption. The loss in aggregate demand and investment, depletion of jobs; increase in environmental degradation and climate hazards, pollution and widening inequalities were proving to be a challenge even before the Covid hit. India lockdown, largest in the world, put brakes nearly on all economic activity, except in agriculture.

Nearly 120 million people have lost their jobs. Phasing out of the lockdown, the trajectory of covid cases remains uncertain making economic revival slower than expected. Many governments across the world have proposed green stimulus and recovery plans to stay the course on climate change. Green New Deal is perhaps a good phraseology to underscore the need to re-order economies where sustainable economic activities create jobs, drive spending, restore demand, and make way out of the recession to a more habitable and equitable world. Can India craft a recovery strategy with sustainable development at its heart?

Certified Climate Bonds in China

Since entering the green bond market in 2016, China has been the world's second largest green bond market for the next three years and one of the largest sources of global certified climate bonds. In 2019, Chinese issuers issued a total of USD2.9 billion worth of Certified Climate Bonds, and the green bonds have become an important part of China's green financial system construction and constantly contribute to the dynamic of green economy.

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 would have a huge impact on global financial markets and economic development and countries have issued large-scaled economic stimulus packages to explore various possibilities for economy to get back on track. We believe that economic stimulus packages should balance economic growth with social benefits, ensuring that sectors and businesses hardest hit by the pandemic are tilted with resources to increase the resilience and sustainability of economic development, and that the development of green bonds and certified climate bonds will be important pillars of the transition.

In the post-pandemic era, opportunities for green bond issuance at the local level in China should be proactively identified and expand the scale of certified climate bonds, which stand for the international best practice to drive the transition of the Chinese economy to a more resilient and sustainable growth approach in the 14th Five-Year Plan period.

Agenda:

  1. How Huatai Securities implements the path of green finance and green bonds
  2. Overview of domestic green bond certification
