Breakdown of corporate GSSS bonds
While corporate green bond issuance is growing rapidly, companies are issuing social, sustainable and sustainability-linked bonds at an even greater rate. As a result, green bonds as a percentage of corporate green, social, sustainability and sustainability-linked bonds shrank from 85% to just under 79% in 2020. Corporate social and sustainability bond issuance rose in 2020 by 313% and 85%, respectively, while the relatively new sustainability-linked bond label saw corporate issuance double in 2020.
