    Green Bonds and the Pathway to Sustainability

    September 23, 2019

    At least $6.9 trillion per year through 2030 is the estimated cost of financing the transition to a low/zero carbon economy.1 Although only part of the solution, tapping the $100 trillion global debt markets via green bonds will be integral to financing projects to help meet climate and other sustainable development goals. Green bonds provide fixed income investors with a way to invest sustainably, without necessarily compromising on risk and return objectives.

    In this guide to green bonds, we explore the following:

    • What makes a bond “green”?
    • The state of the green bond market
    • The role of green bonds in the climate challenge
    • How green bonds fit within a fixed income portfolio.
