Asian GSSS bond issuance hits $600bn, finds report

More than $600 billion of green, social, sustainable and sustainability-linked (GSSS) bonds have been issued out of Asia, Environmental Finance Data shows.

The region has issued $160 billion in such instruments so far this year, bringing the cumulative total to $614 billion. That means Asian GSSS issuance is on track to continue the growth it has enjoyed every year since the market's inception.

The figures are part of a report, available here, produced ahead of Environmental Finance's ESG in Fixed income Asia event in Singapore on Thursday.
