Highlights & Quotes

  • "We need to just leave the green bond market alone the way it is. That market works: it has got a good framework, and we have seen all the issuances that are coming our way from it"

    Andy Kochar, Global Credit Head and Portfolio Manager, AGF Investments

  • "The government is talking about bringing back something along the lines of the Build America Bond (BAB) initiative – I think that would be very exciting"

    Michael Brown, Environmental Finance Manager at ‎San Francisco Public Utilities Commission

  • "I would rather see carbon intensive issuers use a green bond than a sustainability-linked bond actually. At least then there is transparency about how they will use the proceeds to finance their transition to a sustainable company"

    Sanna Petersson, Head of Responsible Investment, Captor Fund Management

  • "Theoretically, we do not believe there should be a premium, because our main risk is linked to the creditworthiness of the issuer – whatever the type of bond they issue, it should be similar”

    Isabelle Vic-Philippe, Head of Euro Aggregate, Amundi

  • "Transparency is more natural for us at the IFC because if you are a financial institution then you should know who you are lending to and the purpose of that loan. So, for us we think the reach numbers are important and are as equally accessible to everyone"

    Esohe Denise Odaro, Head of Investor Relations at International Finance Corporation (IFC)

  • "The SLB market is still very early in its development. I think that SLBs can develop into a credible instrument, but they have yet to be tested."

    Bram Bos, Lead Portfolio Manager for Green Bonds, NN Investment Partners
