DISCUSSION

 

As global environmental and social issues are increasingly under the spotlight, banks and investors want to be seen as behaving responsibly and to support the transition to a more sustainable, low-carbon and fairer economy.

Part of the sector’s answer has been to develop sustainable debt products, which direct finance towards projects with environmental and/or social benefits. Since the issuance of the first Green Bond in 2007, sustainable debt products have seen tremendous growth and diversification. The outstanding volume of sustainable debt now exceeds $1 trillion, includes bonds and loans, cover all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – from fighting climate change to conserving marine habitats to supporting education, healthcare, housing or employment – with borrowers ranging from municipalities to governments to business entities.

The market for these products is becoming more sophisticated and structured, and investors are demanding more transparency and reporting on the use of proceeds. Issuance is likely to continue to keep growing in 2020, with institutional investors shifting their focus to environmentally conscious investments, large repeat green bond issuance, and the increasing popularity of other types of sustainable debt, especially sustainability-linked loans.

The discussion will cover topics including:

  • Key trends and issues around sustainable bonds and loans.
  • Feedback from sustainable debt issuers, underwriters and borrowers.
  • Applications for both global and medium-sized businesses.

This event is in collaboration with our Sustainability & Innovation and Finance & Banking Committees.
