How green bonds have harnessed the power of the financial markets to drive change


The nascent green bond market has witnessed astonishing growth in recent years: worldwide issuance volumes topped $80 billion in 2016, while the diversification of the issuer base has continued unabated as corporates and sovereigns alike have eyed up the funding possibilities. Their raison d'être? To allocate capital to environmental projects – and to offer investors maximum transparency by putting the impact of their investment under the spotlight.

In this video, Eila Kreivi, Head of Capital Markets at the European Investment Bank (EIB), explains how green bonds have harnessed the power of the financial markets to drive positive change. And Ralf Bauer, CFO at Nobelwind, explores how green bonds, including the innovative 'Tera Neva' solution have helped with the funding of wind parks and their role in the development of new economic activities.
