The global green bond market is growing rapidly. Perhaps inevitably in a fast-growing market, challenges and confusion can arise as organisations assess whether issuing a green bond is the right course of action for them and seek to understand the process involved. This paper addresses some key questions and highlights the possible opportunities and challenges in the green bond market. It also provides guidance on the process of issuing a green bond.
