Green & Sustainable bonds: a label is not enough

In Kürze

We expect a significant growth of green bond supply, dominated by issuance in Euro and US Dollar. Corporates, financials and utilities used to comprise the main issuers of green bonds, but more sectors are now joining the party, e.g. car makers. Demand is outpacing supply, leading to a mismatch and, potentially, a larger greenium. As climate risks rise, regulatory interventions may further distort markets.
