Green bonds are an increasingly attractive mechanism for both private and public sector organisations to raise capital for projects, assets or other activities that benefit the economy, environment and society. 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.
