The Green Bond Opportunity

According to the Bank of New York Mellon Corporation (BNY Mellon), the global green bond market continues to see significant growth; it is also attracting a larger and wider issuer base.

This progression reflects 155.5 billion US-Dollar in labeled green bonds, “incorporated into a larger 895 billion US-Dollar universe of climate-aligned bonds that contribute to a low-carbon economy,” the financial institution gave account.

As reported, the proceeding use of green bonds shows how issuers are raising capital to conserve energy and resources, transform transportation systems and protect water, land and forests. “These investments also offer the opportunity for investors to support society’s transition to a more sustainable future while generating financial value,” BNY Mellon said. “However, no single agreed definition of ‘green’ yet exists, creating a market challenge.”

BNY Mellon, which delivers investment management and investment services in 35 countries and more than 100 markets, is, by its own account, committed to fostering the integrity and strength of the market to help clients mobilize investment capital toward their sustainable financial objectives.
