Green bonds are one of the more visible sides of the increasing interest in environmental, social and governance (ESG) impacts on investing. The events of 2020 appear to have only accelerated this trend.
It is something of a truism that where there is investor demand, supply will follow. As investors have focused more on ESG issues, so bond markets have responded. Ratings agencies now include ESG analysis in their ratings, while there are a host of ESG-related bond labels including social bonds, sustainability-linked bonds and green bonds.
