Credible targets and structures are the key to longterm growth of sustainability-linked bonds, states new report from Moody’s ESG Solutions.
Recognised market standards, ambitious corporate agendas and strong investor demand provide fertile ground for rapid growth of the sustainability-linked bond (SLB) market. By focusing on general purpose spending, SLBs open the door to a more diverse group of sectors and issuers seeking to burnish their sustainability credentials via the debt capital markets. Broader sector and issuer participation will, in turn, boost demand for SLB paper by mitigating diversification risk in ESG bond portfolios and providing investors with a wider spectrum of opportunities to support companies’ transition and sustainability efforts.
