Making Green Bonds Work for Planet and People

“Making Green Bonds Work: Social and Environmental Benefits at Community Level” is a new research report prepared by Carbon Care Asia for Oxfam Hong Kong after analysing 249 green bonds with an aggregate issue amount of US$84 billion issued in Asian emerging markets between January 2018 and September 2019.

This report aims to find out whether we can be sure green bonds achieve their intended environmental targets, whether projects funded with green bonds are resilient to climate risks, whether these projects also ensure social benefits, and what kind of best practice can be identified.

In this issue, you will learn more about the various crucial research results and observations from the Oxfam Report, as well as our recommendations that might help green bonds work better for both planet and people.
