This report examines the potential for sustainable bond issuance in five countries focussing on three key sectors.

The report begins with an introductory chapter outlining the scope of the report and the wider market context. This is followed by three sector benchmark chapters examining each target sector on a global scale. These chapters are structured to provide an overview of the sector make up, sustainability drivers in the sector and emerging market (EM) unlabelled (vanilla) fixed income debt.

There are deep dives into sustainable bond issuance assessing total market size, region, issuer type, and top issuers with focus on emerging market potential. Included are brief insights into alternate sustainable debt such as green and sustainability-linked loans and an outlook for sustainable bond issuance in the sector.

In addition there are five country analysis chapters. The structure of each country analysis begins with a brief overview of the macro-economic situation, a summary of regulations and government policy regarding sustainable debt or sustainability targets and details on any sustainable bond issuance.

Each country sector summary provides an overview of the sector and sector structure, a list of leading real economy companies, total bond issuance in the sector, both sustainable and unlabelled vanilla from all issuers, and a conclusion on the outlook for sustainable bond issuance in the country sector.
