The exponential growth in sustainability-linked products shaping finance frameworks

The exponential growth in sustainability-linked products shaping finance frameworks

An Environmental Finance and ING webinar

8 December 2021, 3:00 PM GMT

Sustainable Finance continues to witness exponential growth with green, social and sustainability linked annual debt issuances surpassing $1 trillion last September.

While all product types portray strong performance, sustainability-linked have been the fastest growing, bringing in new issuer types, industries and types of frameworks. In order to cope with the growing global ambitions towards sustainability, CFO's and treasurers have a wider array of opportunities to further connect financing of green and social projects and sustainability goals into a comprehensive sustainable finance document; but is this recommended for all contemplating sustainable debt? Join us for a conversation with issuers, underwriters and ESG experts on how sustainable finance frameworks are evolving and supporting the steering of sustainability and business growth.
