Green bonds 2014 webinar
Year round up - how and why the green bond market has trebled in size this year

2014 has seen an explosion in the green bonds issuance – over $35 billion have been issued this year alone tripling the 2013 figure and raising the 2015 expectations to $100 billion. New issuers, new investors and first-ever market indices prove that green bonds have a real potential to shift substantial capital towards investments that bring the world on the road to a low carbon and climate resilient economy.
